Romanesco – Fractals

The wind was blowing a gale at the site today as we plodded over to the brassica cage for a second vegetable to go with our first picking of sprouts. Imagine our surprise when we spotted this beautiful pale green Romanesco. It is a truly lovely looking vegetable and living proof of the miracle of the mathematics of nature.

I ordered a DVD today for Rob’s Christmas present. It was ‘Grow Your Own’. I can’t wait to watch it.
