Plants expanding our palette

Palette:

I also love bringing plants into our garden because it expands the plant varieties that we are exposed to, both in the garden and in the kitchen.  Often in the grocery store, there is just one kind of broccoli, three kinds of tomatoes, certain culinary herbs, but we want more!

Oh green zebra tomatoes, we haven't forgotten about you...Photo thanks to The Marmot.

Ol & I went to our favorite plant sale recently~ the Boulder Culinary Gardeners plant sale~ and we got so many neat varieties.  We aim for weird.  Like the Black Prince tomatoes.  We also aim for delicious, like the Campari tomatoes we got as well.  Lots of pepper plants, herbs, and pickling cucs.  These are plant varieties you just don’t see in the store (if you don’t garden, go to the farmer’s market and look for variety there).
