Vegetable Rainbow ( repost)

There’s a rainbow of color in your vegetable aisle! Have you noticed that bright white cauliflower now has a purple friend? Or that green peppers aren’t always green? I don’t mean yellow, or red, I mean purple!

Purple, my favorite color! Is making its way onto the produce shelves. Thanks to hybrid farming your dinner plate can look like a rainbow. Now, I don’t mind trying something different so purple cauliflower may be the next new thing on our dinner table.
Our vegetable garden has been thriving this season. We are currently overwhelmed with fresh tomatoes. No complaints, we love them even if they are just a beautiful red color. I wonder if someone will develop purple tomatoes! That would be perfectly fine with me. I’ll plant them alongside the red ones.
Our green peppers are green and that’s just fine too. But next year, I think we’ll try purple ones and maybe purple carrots too. Maybe our grandchildren will eat more vegetables if they resemble candy.
Don’t forget to stop by your local farmer’s market and help support your local farms.

Thanks for visiting me! I love the pics too but am wonderng...are veggies that color safe? Have they been genetically modified? Or are they natural and I have been living under a rock--haha?

Thanks Katherine for dropping by "puddinglane" I really appreciated that - do visit often.
I've been thinking of different coloured fruits and vegetables that I love and the 2 that are my favourites are blood oranges - lovely dark and mysterious and sweet - and Russian black tomatoes, also dark but the taste is unrivalled -tres delicieux!

I seem to recall there was purple Ketchup at one time. I think green too. :)

Pam said...

I haven't seen too many of the wild color veggies here except for the purple cauliflower. I can't get past the color making me think it tastes different.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who admires vegetable at the market for their beautiful colours and gloss! I have had one or two strange looks sent my way as I stand in the midst of the bins looking around me with a big grin on my face for the many colours and textures.

Of course, I buy locally as often as I can and support our local farmers. Thanks for a fun and thoughtful post...

Love your pictures - the colors are wonderful! And I just LOVE the photos in your blog header, too - so pretty!

Purple peppers!? Never heard of such a thing! Sounds like the start of a tongue-twister....are they crossed with something or are they just 'bred' to be purple!? Does purple have extra health enhancing qualities, like bright green or red? How strange...but pretty!

Kathy said...

Can't wait until these hit our stores here in AZ! Great pics!

Nicki Woo said...

Such beautiful pics on your blog! Lovely. I just want to sit a spell and be mesmorized by it all.

Following you now! I'll be back soon.
