Red Cabbage

I’m very proud of my Red Cabbage.

It is only growing here at all because I bought it by mistake, thinking it was a plain old green cabbage. The picture on the label quite definitely showed a plain old green cabbage and how was I supposed to know that the “rouge” written across the label in marker pen made such a difference?

So here they are. Almost the first plants I bought for my vegetable garden and certainly the most successful, I have already been cutting the young leaves and using them in my salads.

Let's raise a glass to Chou Rouge

Hi kate,

The French have some lovely words like chou and bisous, some of which they use in the strangest of ways.
