Its been a great year for our fall/winter brassicas. No freeze...yet...not even a good jack frost. We've been eating Green Magic broc about three times a week through November:

The stonehead cabbage has been used several times in soups and stir fry:

Plentiful radishes red and white..more than we can use...thriving in our mild fall so far:

Yes, I concur, the cole crops (Brassica oleracea, Brassica rapa, etc.) and the closely related Radish (Raphanus sativus) are indeed, bountiful mainstays of the Fall-Winter garden. Another one I've become particularly enamored of is Tat-soi (Brassica rapa ssp. narinosa), but they are all quitedelicious when properly prepared in a variety of dishes.
