Kohlrabi has got to be one of the weirdest vegetables. It is the stem that swells to make these bulbs rather than the roots. The leaves spring out like arms from the top of these bulbous stems. Kohlrabi are usually a vibrant pale green, but these were lovely shades of green, purple, lavender, pink, blue, yellow, and gold. I found them in the Portland, Oregon, organic farmers' market. With the leaves and roots removed, some looked like teapots and cabbage roses. So I wonder how many folks when seeing this design will ponder what it is: "Oh, it's a ____... No, it's a ___..." only in the end to discover it is kohlrabi. On the wide twist ties, which bind the other vegetables, you will find a secret code: "143 143 143." My father and mother started this code in their World War II correspondence as a private expression written on the outside of their envelopes: I(1) LOVE(4) YOU(3).
