The first photo looks like a savoy cabbage and the second photo??? Third photo is Swiss chard. Lovely pictures Sha. Have safe travels and good luck. I envy you people for nicely shot pics. Low end kasi camera ko…lol Ingat Sha and have a safe trip always. of course I can name them: 1. green vegetable 2. purple vegetable 3. di-coloured vegetable (or a greedy vegetable, stealing 2 colours of itself!) xxxx I like mamunaku’s answer the best! They are savoy cabbage, purple kale, and swiss chard. One side of living in the land of the cold is that you get very familiar with winter vegetables. They grow really well here in the summer. Sounds like you’re having a good time. That’s good to hear! hi Sha, jet setting ka nanaman pala. 🙂 firs veg, savoy cabbage, second, purple kale?, third, swiss chard. Great photos as usual! beautiful veggies photos, enjoy your trip. Dutch father used to plant these winter vegies but he gave up his little land almost 2 years ago as he cannot keep up with it anymore (he is 75 now I think). At any rate, I’m busy myself with so many things work-related and will try to catch up with you soon by email. I wonder how long you are staying in Athens? ‘Might’ (depending on the schedule) go there. oh what a delicious and healthy eye promenade!!! Hi Sha, Is the last one beetroot? Gorgeous pictures! I love winter vegetables! Cheers, Rosa Hi Rosa… I know in Switzerland you can have a great selection of winter vegetables. In Greece however we do not get much of a variety.. like for example cabbage.. its not easy to find savoy on first picture. Jo not beetroot…. in Greece we only have the red variety of beets thats SWISS CHARD… you can buy chards at laiki but only the green variety, thats what I know, I go to 3 laikis in my area but never seen this kind of chard. In fact the first time I saw red swiss chard was in Italy. JMom and Laurie got the answers right Hi Lin its PURLE KALE… thanks for passing by getting better and better with photography, Sha! I wish I can find some purple kale in my area, my husband would love it with his potato Hi Sha! Thanks for dropping by A Pinay In England. Much appreciated and I hope you enjoyed the visit. I love your photos. They’re very sharp and well composed. Do you plant these vegetables and eat them? If you’re into photography, perhaps you’d be inclined to visit Norwich Daily Photo and let me know what you think of my photos. 😀 joy Your Love Coach The Goddess In You Sha, you do so much magic with your camera! Loved those veggies! Hi Sha great shots of those winter veggies. No idea what they are but if they look as crunchy as your pictures I can give them a go even though I’m not really into veggies. I know I should them to my staple diet. Thanks for dropping by my blog! Be safe in your travels 🙂 Are you back in England? waaaahhh…sarap naman ng vegies KUNG HEI FAT CHOI. I came here for the LAI SEE (money pockets) you know. But since you’re not a CHINESE, ok na yung green salad in a big plate and an ice tea for me. All the best on the Year of The Rat! Yes ! Yes! We know these because we grow them! Your photographs are just beautiful!!! Gosh, we enjoy visiting you here because you take us around the world! What gorgeous photos! I’m guessing they are savoy cabbage, purple kale, and swiss chard?? Leave a ReplyYour email address will not be published.
