As a plant I find this grouping simply intri-guing. The color combinations, interesting leaves including the defined veins, the curling tops some of them have and design structure is just fascinating. I photographed this one at our local Olive Garden where there were so many to choose from I just couldn't believe it. The light was perfect casting a lot of deep dark shadows making the lovely layers even more intoxicating to look at.
As a food group, kale is in the cabbage family. It is among the hardiest and most nutritious vegetable a gardener can grow. However, I can tell you that I'm not a fan of the taste but at least I tried it. That's quite something, believe me!
