Green and Purple Days in the Country Garden

It's only a couple of weeks past the winter solstice, the ground is getting really wet and muddy from lots of rain and there have been regular frosts and freezing cold nights.  The garden could certainly be forgiven for not being productive at this time of year.  And yet it's flourishing, albeit in a slower, wintery way!  

And while the predominant colour is green, in the kale, silverbeet, leek, spring onion, radish, rocket and growing broad beans, snow peas and turnips, there are also lots of bursts of purple all through the garden at the moment.
