Every day now we return from the garden with a collection of edible goodies. The new comers today were the cabbages. There were multiple layers of bad smelling mouldy bits on them, but once peeled away we found small and happy looking nutrition colour-bundles ready and waiting for us within.
Which tasted great in the salad!
The leeks look lovely in the morning light. I don't often remember to take my phone to the garden but on this occasion I'm glad I did.
How cool is this squash growing up a tree!
Here are the kids washing the veg before it goes in the basket. They love little jobs like this.
The Fractal Cabbage
This little beauty is a Romanesco Cabbage. Look closer and you will see the fractal perfection developing in the shade of its thick leaves.
Ever since I came across this special vegetable for the first time three years ago (don't think we have them in the UK?) I have been intending to grow it here because it seems to me there is something quite magical about it.
I mean just look at it!
There are fractals everywhere in life but never before have I seen 'The Infinite Perfection of All That Is' displayed so clearly by a humble vegetable from Southern Europe without the use of hallucinogens!
So there you have it ;)
I leave you with a shot of our region and some very fine words by Joseph Campbell.
Just in case the words are too small for you to read!
The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the Universe, to match your nature with Nature.
