Kohlrabi, a cultivar of Brassica oleracae, that magnificant species that also includes Collards, Kale, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Broccolli, Cauliflower and numerous other local varieties. Much like the species Canis domesticus, the dog, the Brassicas are capable of changing into many different forms. Cool. Life Is Metamorphosis.

A medley of lettuce with sugar peas - a cool season crop.

Gomphrena flowers, aka Globe Amaranth or as they say here locally "Bozos".  (Croton, Brassicas, Peas, Sunflower and Sweet Corn in the background.)

Edible Ornamentals. My biggest pests are finches who LOVE to eat the Gomphrena seeds and chow down on the peas and Brassica leaves. Sigh.. Oh well, they are hungry too, and eat the houseflies. They call me Ja. Ja provide.

Cilantro turning into coriander. (Edible leaf called cilantro, or coriander leaf; seed spice called coriander)
