Thanks, Genie! If I hadn't felt so old, maybe I'd have started them from seeds instead of buying them!

Beautiful cabbages! We have them here, too, but I haven't gotten any this year. Didn't even get pansies. Guess I'm getting old.

Thanks, Steve! I haven't heard of people eating this particular kind, but I'm sure it could be, same as regular green kale. I imagine the colors would be lost if it were cooked, however. Think in terms of purple cabbage that is added to green salads for added color that is edible.

I'll have to remember that, Shirley! I have a grandson who would rather starve than eat cooked greens, LOL!

Yes, the same for me. But my daughter cuts the
kale in smaller pieces and puts them in a
zip lock baggie, pours a bit of olive oil in
and perhaps a few herbs for seasoning, closes
it and works them around until all are coated
with olive oil. She puts them on a baking sheet
and bakes them perhaps at 400 degrees until crisp.
My granddaughters eat them like kids eating potato
chips or fries. Otherwise they probably would
never think of eating kale.

Thanks, Shirley and Delana! No, Shirley, I'm not acquainted with that particular treat. Around here, greens such as spinach, collards, kale, cabbage, etc. are usually cooked with bacon or fatback and served with vinegar. I usually eat such things with butter.

It is colorful - too pretty to cook
and eat! Have you ever tried making
kale chips - yummy! Learned that from
my daughter! Thanks for sharing!
Congratulations on a beautiful AC!

Thanks, Jen and Elaine! I wanted something to shoot for Thanksgiving day, but didn't want to go far from home to get it... and these were right on my front porch. Maybe today I can get them set in the planter boxes. They should withstand the cold all right even though it's been down in the 20's every night lately!

Thanks, Dianne; as I said in the caption, I bought these, because by the time the regular growing season was over, I was so tired of gardening that I just didn't get around to it. I went to the garden center looking for pansies, but found the selection so picked over that I settled for these kales and some violas instead. Haven't even set them in the planter boxes yet, it's been so cold.
