Last Autumn, I carefully planted my brassica seeds
and nurtured them till it was time to plant them out.
I planted mine in a carefully prepared bed.
The netting I put over the top did a great job
keeping the cabbage moths away...but not the goats!
So, we went without.
I gave some seedlings to my sister
and, as she has more sense than to keep goats,
she had a wonderful crop.
Yesterday she brought one of the caulies
for us to eat.
Although it is tradition, we couldn't kill the fatted calf to celebrate
this prodigal's return because we didn't have a calf at hand
and anyway, we eat mainly vegetarian here now.
So we did the next best thing and killed the fatted cauliflower
and put it in a potato and cauliflower curry!
I won't post the recipe...just put 'curry cauliflower' in your search engine and take your pick!
