A simple sowing of summer annuals creates a vibrant, meadowlike effect surrounding a carefully planned bed of purple- and blue-green- leaved vegetables. As well as looking good, the daisylike flowers will attract many beneficial insects to the plot to pollinate crops and prey on pests. Cabbages, leeks and different varieties of kale will continue the display through fall and winter.
