Vegetable gardening feeds my desire to buy and grow unusual plants. I love watching interesting varieties of common plants put on a show in my garden.
This year I grew kale for the first time — Red Russian, which boasts beautiful red leaf stalks and tender twisting intricate green leaves, and Red Ursa — which is red all over and has tight, tiny curls like a perm left in too long!
If you’ve been wanting to add edibles to your perennial landscape beds – these varieties are the perfect addition. If you don’t have to worry about deer or other critters getting them, that is.
They look so pretty in the garden.
And even better picked an in a bowl ready for washing!
