I heard on tellie the other day that there's a new tastier, more tender
veggie coming our way.  It's a cross between broccoli and gailon, the
Chinese Kale or broccoli.  Expected price is $3 per pound.  But beat the
rush, folks.  Stokes seed co. developed such a cross in 1982.  Called
Paragon broccoli, a packet of about 1,000 seeds is $2.35.  I'm awaiting the
opportunity to grow (drum roll)...Black Brandywine!  Margaret
