bloody... dock... ?

Is that a thing?  It was curiosity at first sight for @EatingNiagara and it was the same for me.  I read about Tiffany's discovery of this strange red veined leafy specimen at a greenhouse in Niagara-on-the-Lake and I was hooked as well, especially with my recently successful rainbow chard experience.  Since I'm relatively landlocked and transport challenged in the downtown core of St. Catharines, she was kind enough to bring me a great healthy plant in exchange for a few of my many peppers!  It was also really great to finally meet one of my local e-friends!  I got it all potted up in a silver basin to accent the colour and although I haven't tried eating it yet I'm hoping it will be a bright addition to my summer salad mixes.

  1. I can't wait to hear how you like it (if you like it). It looks comfortably at home in its silver pot. I enjoyed meeting you, too. We should exchange plants again sometime (or maybe some of the harvest).
