Flowering cauliflowers: leeks and cabbages

A couple of Doug's cauliflowers have been left too long in the sun and have matured a little too much, developing unusual yet attractive flowers. It doesn't matter though, as they taste delicious and crunchy in a salad, and soft and sweet when cooked.

Ox heart cabbages and leeks are ready to eat too, along with parsley,, lettuces, spinach,, snow peas, silver beet, carrots -- -- -- and there are still some of the 80 or so pumpkins grown earlier in the year.

There is plenty to give away and share, and plenty to exchange for eggs and sweet potatoes.

Mitchell in outback Queensland is blessed with good soil and plenty of water and sunshine.
