How Much Purple Cabbage Can Two People Eat Anyway?

Enough purple cabbage already… but it is so good for you. The cabbage family are reputed to fight cancer. What’s a girl to do? Let two or three cabbage go to seed and then throw them all about your garden, there will be so many you will then “weed” them when they are tiny and use them in salad or soup. Let a few grow into cabbage heads, even if they only make small heads, they’re great for stir fry or minced into salad. Suellen Ocean is the author of the vegetarian cookbook, Poor Jonny’s Cookbook.

What’s a Truck Garden?

What’s a truck garden? I have come to think of it as a farmer who conducts business out of the back of his truck but sixty years ago Truck Gardening referred to the farm product being so far away from the market that the farmer needed to ship it on a boat or place it upon railway cars delivering it to larger metropolitan areas. I like my interpretation of it better. The image of a farmer selling colorful fresh produce out of the back of his or her truck is pleasing. This form of produce sales is popular in New Orleans where you’ll see farmers with small trucks or vans selling specialty produce like, Cajun Tomatoes.  Suellen Ocean is the author of the vegetarian cookbook, Poor Jonny’s Cookbook.
