Romanesco me…

First documented in the 16th Century in Northern Italy Romanesco broccoli or cauliflower is an edible flower that lets just say has been around for some time.  Visually surreal with a short growing season and mild flavor look for it now at your farmer’s market.

I’ve got some growing in my front yard which to date the deer have left alone but I know where to get more should they choose to indulge.
