    I guess I should have mentioned the curry sauce I made had my own apple sauce but made with apples from my neighbor's tree and the shrimp cucumber salad had my own dried oregano sprinkled in it. Hopefully that counts.

    Took some bread & butter pickles to work for us to eat for lunch. Last night, I opened up canned potatoes, rinsed off the starch and put in the oven for oven fries. Yum!

    92E8E526-9320-48E9-BA68-1D8B174F73A0.jpeg First time growing romanesco. Don’t think I’ll grow it again. Plant gets too big and harder to grow than cauliflower.

    They sure are beautiful. I have not had any luck growing them/ What is the flavor like? Too big? Taking up two much room? Giving you too much crop?

    I have to agree, it is pretty. Such an intense green. Looks to be the same color as athos or green buttons.

    Romanesco are a very pretty intense bright green. They are in the broccoli family so they taste kind of like broccoli. I'm not sure how big they are supposed to get but I think mine are on the small size. The plants got hugh! Bigger than my cauliflower. They also seemed to take longer to grow. But here they are a great winter crop. They also have small bublets under the main head. Maybe these would grow into another head but I was impatient to pull them out and get the bed ready for my spring planting which is around the corner.

    They just take up to much valuable space for me to grow them again. I will stick to growing cauliflower which matures faster and is a smaller plant. I've only grown the white one but come fall I will grow the white, green, and purple ones. The green cauliflower is the same green as the romanesco.

    Some don't like kale. Some (including me) don't really like Brussels sprouts.

    This looks tasty to me, have you seen them @ninnymary ?

    Steve, I haven't heard of them. I'm going to ask my son if he has.

    A couple years ago you suggested that I grow more greens. We'll I'm finally slowly doing it. I really like the cut and come again stuff or greens that I can harvest the lower leaves from and it keeps going. Joi Choi is one I like and will keep growing it. The Scarlet kale has become my favorite kale. This fall/winter I've been able to grow swiss chard without the darn leaf miners getting to it. But I think I want to try Verde di Tagli too. ;)

    Thank you, we've been eating them just roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper. That's how we eat our brussel sprouts and cauliflower.

    I didn't even know when to harvest them. I just assumed like cauliflower that you want the "curds" tight. Yes, that's what they are called.
