Pretty! Love cabbage, we eat around 70 kilograms cabbage per year! :) Those beets look lovely, is it your own?

I admire you for using your vegetables from your garden and make delicious food like this. So pretty and looks delicious! I love cabbage and only buy organic because it tastes so much better. I only found that out about the big difference in flavor 2-3 years ago.
