That’s a 55 degree swing. Wow. Nothing was lost, we enjoyed the cool morning, and now we’re back to admiring the rainbow that comes out of the ground




Pardon the photo of cooking, but these radishes, roasted in butter and salt, are amazingly delicious and gorgeous. We used to feel just sort of ~eghh~ about radishes. Now we truly appreciate them, look forward to them, and relish them. Raw with salt and butter. Roasted, as shown.


Pickled with carrots. Fermented in Kim Chi. It is our goal to help you dear readers learn the array of ways to enjoy this seriously good eating this season. Tell us how you need more help.
