Casa Quickie: Plant Brassicacea For Hearty Winter Vegetables

Even if you live in a somewhat mild Winter climate, there's always the chance of a freeze. Even here in the Bay Area, we've had some freezing temperatures this Winter.

So, if you want to still enjoy some homegrown veg that will withstand the tough temps, look to plants in the Brassicacea family. These would include veggies like turnips, Brussels sprouts, rapini, romanesco, mustard greens, collards, kale, bok choy, rutabaga, radishes, arugula, broccoli, and cauliflower. Do you have a favorite among these? Then grab some seedlings from your local garden center and get planting!

I'd check Whole Foods, a farmer's market, or a health food store for it. You're more likely to find one there than at a bigger grocery store.

It looks kind of scary haha, but I'm curious to try it! I've never seen it in any stores (and I live in the desert, so successfully planting stuff is difficult). Is it usually sold in smaller markets, or do chain groceries also carry it?

It's romanesco broccoli, also known as Roman cauliflower. I *love* serving this whole, steamed, to guests. It is so pretty, and has a really great flavor.
