A decent, if somewhat bitter, November salad
Enjoying the warm, very rainy day here on the Island. Picked some greens and the last orange pepper for a salad tonight - pretty decent for November! chard leaves, endives, parsley, jalapeno pepper, nasturtium flowers and leaves,purple kale,(I LOVE the colour of this kale!), lettuce,cress, beet greens - fortunately I happen to love bitter greens, as these Winter leaves tend to be. I could have added some grated beets, too - and will soon have some sprouting broccoli ready to pick. My neighbour has sprouting cauliflower, which is amazing - I've never seen it grow multiple sprouts like that - I will have to get a photo of it to show you.
