Sea Kale

Nearly went to bed without posting so this is just a quickie: sea kale, Crambe maritima. There is an impressive display on the shingle beach between Newhaven and Seaford with more prolific flowering than I can remember. It used to be a delicacy, the young leaves blanched and eaten like modern cabbage and kale. Although often plentiful in the places where it is still found, overall it has declined enormously.
