I have never liked those weird purple cabbages that people use in the cold weather months as foliage in their gardens and window boxes. Ornamental, pah!
But the new trend seems to be swiss chard. Swiss chard is not for decor! It is for eating! Yes, it has nice colors. But it just weirds me out to see things that I am supposed to be eating used in formal garden settings like the Boston Public Garden. Even if I don't really ever eat them. It just seems wrong. What's next, cheese sculpture?
I'm just sharing my indignation here, and no, I do not have a point.
