Purple things:: cabbages in the garden
'Veggie' just doesn't seem to do these cabbages justice. In my alternate life, if I were off somewhere very fancy (the Oscars where I was up for Best Screenplay, for example, or Cannes for the premiere of my much anticipated debut as writer director, "Drought Tolerance", starring Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette and Tim Minchin*) I'd ask some emerging designer to make me a dress modeled on a red cabbage. My cabbages look like haute couture should look - subtly coloured, a bit of a flounce and cunningly structured to look light while never loosing their shape.
Until chopped up and pickled in white wine vinegar and juniper, to be served with good pork sausages. Still, they had a good life.
