Cutting four heads of Cavolo Nero all at the same time might sound like a lot, since there are only two of us to eat it, but in truth the "heads" were very small - just the tips of the plants with 10 or 12 smallish leaves each. The plants were beginning to flower and really needed using up.
As it happens, the demise of the last Cavolo Nero was well-timed, since I need the bed in which they were living to be freed-up for Broad Beans, which I always sow in mid-February.
Since we had no immediate plans for cooking the Cavolo Nero I put it in a plastic Stayfesh bag, in the fridge, which will keep it in good condition for at least a fortnight. Meanwhile I'll just sit back and admire some more of my photos of this fascinating vegetable!
OK then, Cavolo Nero, let this not be "Farewell", but rather "See you again soon"! I'm sure to be sowing seeds for more of you in a couple of months' time.
