Healing Cabbage: story 'Seven Sisters'
Mrs Soya had barely finished her story when there was a knock on the door, and seven beautiful girls came into the cafe. They bowed, and started to sing a song. At the end of each verse, one of the girls came up to Toby and handed him a present.
‘O beautiful, curly cabbage head,' sang a plump girl wearing layers and layers of green and white skirts and capes. ‘I am Green Cabbage, take this treasure from me,' She handed the boy a firm cabbage head and a tin of sauerkraut.
‘O beautiful, curly red cabbage head,' sang the second girl, who was dressed like the first girl, but with dark red and purple skirts instead of green and white ones. She gave the boy a dark burgundy cabbage head.
The third girl, dressed in a tunic made from crinkly leaves, bowed and said:
‘I have a green tunic with thick, curly frills: who am I?'
‘You're a cabbage!' the boy cried happily.
‘Correct, I am Savoy Cabbage and I have two presents for you,' the third girl said. She handed the boy two cabbages: on one the leaves stuck out on different sides, and on the other they curled slightly.
‘ Savoy cabbage heads are not firm because they're closer than any other kind to our ancestor, the wild cabbage, which grows along the banks of the Mediterranean Sea ,' Savoy Cabbage announced proudly.
At that moment, a fat girl who looked like a little barrel walked out and began to sing:
‘O cabbage head, you're not curly, you grow with a little jacket of leaves. Look how wide you are, look how fat you are!'
The fat girl gave the boy two root cabbages: a light-green one and a purple one, then she explained:
‘This is the bulge which grows from my root, it's very tasty and juicy. I am Hungarian Cabbage. I don't become a curly cabbage head, so I'm not afraid of cold weather. My sisters only become strong in June, but people tuck into my turnip-root cabbages long before that.'
‘My children grow, fifty in a row!' sang another girl, who had lots of little cabbage heads poking out among her leaves.
‘Brussels Sprout,' the girl said, introducing herself, and she placed a basket full of little green cabbage heads the size of walnuts on the table.
‘What tiny little things!' Toby exclaimed.
‘My babies are full of potassium, magnesium and iron,' Brussels Sprout said proudly.
Then Toby watched as a sixth girl with light, almost white hair walked up to him. She placed a round, white head made up of small, flower-like, tightly-compressed shoots on the table and sung:
‘Look at my beautiful, white curly head.'
‘You're a cauliflower!' the boy said.
‘That's correct. I am called a cauli flower because I feed people with my flowers, or, to be more precise, my buds.'
Then the last girl arrived. She had curly dark green hair and a purple sheen. The cabbage she carried looked just like her hair.
‘My name is Broccoli, and I am more nutritious than any of my sisters,' the seventh sister said. ‘But I am not grown nearly as much. I have forty times more vitamin A than White Cabbage, and I am even more tender than cauliflower. Moreover, I produce flowers all summer. If you cut one off, another one will grow in
‘Why are there so many different types of cabbages?' the boy asked in amazement.
‘Well, it's an amazing story!' the cabbage girls cried in chorus.

The teacher gives everyone cards with drawings of different vegetables on them. The children must not show them to each other. One child is the cook. He or she must touch one of the children in the group and they then describe their vegetable without saying its name. If the cook guesses the vegetable correctly, he or she takes it for their vegetable soup. If they get it wrong, the owner keeps their vegetable. The more vegetables the cook collects for his soup, the tastier it will be.
