Purple kale

Purple kale! 

Late this afternoon we were all back at Mitre 10, in pursuit of more equipment for the project to strip back the paint from Brighid's windows, and now to strip the window opening rods back to their original splendour.  One day there will be photos.

Whilst there, I happened to discover there had been a new shipment of plants at the garden section, including purple kale.  I grew red russian kale a few years ago, and found it grew to the size of a small tree and wasn't as delicious as cavolo nero or curly kale.  But this variety is a much deeper purple and I found it irresistible.  Thanks to another beautiful evening outside, the purple kale, plus the rest of the tatsoi, silverbeet and spinach which I hadn't finished planting yesterday, are in the ground.
