Veggies that were not eaten by bugs

by This is Carrie on February 5, 2009

Since my winter garden flopped, I decided to try a few boxes of fruits and veggies from the local CSA to get my fill of local grown veggies. I’m going to try the same tactics I used with broccoli to get the kids to try this cool green cauliflower (?).

thank you for enlightening me on the ways of the CSA. hopefully i can hook up with one this summer — what a beautiful thing. btw, you can also work in a little math lesson on “fractals” with the broccoli. i love your posts.

oh, wow. That looks really cool/delicious! I’ll have to go looking for your blog on getting kids to eat their veggies! A trick every mom must know. :)

Could that be any prettier? It looks like a magical Cambodian temple or something. Show them photos of Angor Wat and then have the cauliflower be a magical veggie…?

is that real? i’ve never seen anything like it!

That is awesome! Almost too pretty to eat.

My nephews loved broccoli and called it little trees. One of the few veggies they liked.

Those are so funky-looking. They kinda remind me of the trees on the 1970’s edition of the Chronicles of Narnia. Pretty cool veggie.

That is amazing! I’ve never seen anything like it before.

update: it was DELICIOUS. tasted just like cauliflower but maybe a tad sweeter? Still would love to find out it’s proper name.

how neat! i have never seen anything like that before :)

That looks amazing! I wonder if my non-veggie eating husband would eat that if I didn’t tell him what it was? 😉

Carrie, I am working on my own SFG. David built the boxed last weekend. I’m so excited! But . . . ummm . . . where in the world do I get vermiculite and peat moss? Any suggestions? I looked online and shipping is killer.

I found it all at our local farm supply. I am sure there are places out by you that would carry it. Call before you go though.
