There are lots of goodies in the garden including masses of rainbow greens, onions and today's harvest of rhubarb for some muffins.
Magenta Spreen: Chenopodium gigantium
Like its cousin, lamb's quarters - Chenopodium album, it excells at seeding but look at the seedlings!
Orach - Red and Gold: Atriplex hortensis
Another self sowing beauty which makes for a delicious cooked or fresh green rainbow.
My youngest, for scale, with a strange smile on her face. Mabye she's not sure about rhubarb muffins or maybe it was all those green gooseberries she insisted on eating?
Great rainbow greens:
Orach - comes in colours from gold, purple, red, magenta, green and in between
Chard - Bright Lights is a favourite or try beets like Bull's Blood
Mustard - Many asian greens come in shades of purple and pink
Chicory - look for red and variegated varieties.
Magenta Spreen - A towering plant once its mature and delicious
Amaranth - Gold, red, orange, variegated. Look for types for greens
Kale - purple, pale and green with purplish viens
Lettuce - more than I can describe
Fennel in bronze and green
