In Season

Here are some photos of our most recent harvest. You see two typical cool weather crops - radish and snap peas. Surprisingly, hiding in the pile are also some green beans. Our beans hung on (no pun intended!) a long time this year. We are just taking our last Scarlet Runners off the vine.

Below, take a look at this split radish. It's a lovely photo, but not an ideal radish outcome. Research indicates that radishes split for two reasons. One, they are past their prime. Two, they received a bounty of moisture after a relatively dry period. They root takes the water up so quickly, it literally pops!
