Two new brassicas...

My gardening guru and pal Christine gave me a couple new brassicas to try, Beira Tronchuda Cabbage and Redbor Kale. I transplanted some of them out into the garden this morning, along with another planting of radishes (Cherry Bell), peas (Cascadia this time, amongst some Super Sugarsnaps) and Upland Cress. (All these seeds from Pinetree.) I also picked another three large and beautiful tomatoes (Jetsetter). We had a tomato salad last night (along with some shark I caught on Tuesday, deep fried with hushpuppies... mmmmmm....). The tomatoes' texture is excellent, but a little less intensely flavored than summer tomatoes.
