My Little Cabbage

The French have an endearment they use for loved ones: mon petit chou, or "my little cabbage."

I never understood why calling someone a cabbage was a good thing. Until my work in the garden this weekend:

Here's one of several savoy cabbages growing in the garden, all ruffles and vivid green deliciousness. Most of them have developed heads about this size -- still a ways to go, but I'm getting hungry for them already.

Now that's a sweetheart of a cabbage!

I'm thinking I just might have to do that this weekend! Mmmmm... garden fresh cole slaw!
