Joyful colours of summer's garden produce

Photos by Barry Wallace
Purple peppers  & Green Cauliflower
Linda and I ran across a couple of new-coloured veggies at Round-the-Bend Farm in Kettleby today.   Below are purple peppers and in the photo below that, in the upper-right corner is green cauliflower, with a unique textured surface that is spire-shaped with knobbly florets.   Green cauliflower is also known as Romanesco Broccoli, Buzzy Broc, Brocco Flower, Romanesque Cauliflower or just plain Romanesco.   Cauliflower and Broccoli are closely related and cross-compatible.   Meanwhile in the bottom picture there were red, white, yellow and orange peppers, as well as green peppers, to go with the purple ones.   Can you imagine if summer's veggies had no colours?   What if all the veggies were just black or white?   Horrors!   I'd starve.

Please comment if you wish.
