There are variations in the amount of savoy and purple as to be expected in this f3x2 (the biennial nature of the project means there are overlapping generations. I also have f3x1 in seed right now. I could grow f4 overwinter and both an f3x3 and an f4x1 next year along with an f3x2 in seed. Increasingly bonkers yes.).
Some have buckling which may be caused by some dreaded gal causing thing or as I like to interpret it (according to another farmer - stress... I have seen this occasionally before on kales and whatnot without any more untoward symptoms. By fall, I may see some head rot and that's something I am going to start strongly selecting resistance as well. I'm expecting this year to be challenging given the swinging temperatures and flooding rain.
I'll report back in October.
