The Grass is Always Greener...

Red and green should never be seen, except with something in between... The red soils of the Forth Valley looked ripe for planting this weekend as we collected firm, freshly picked and pert Brussel sprouts for this week's hilbarn boxes. The secret to cooking sprouts to a tee is the time: 3 to 5 minutes in salty boiling water. Or, slice them finely, like Liliputian cabbages, and braise them in butter.

Beautiful image. Its intersting that the natural world provides colour combinations that always appear perfectly suited.
