Radishes

For an easy dinner the other night, Lindsay and I made roasted vegetables, and while that’s not interesting enough to post about again, we did wind up with an interesting radish selection in the dish.

We purchased three vastly types of radishes from three different vendors (from left to right in the photo):

A black radish (from Paffenroth Gardens) A watermelon radish (from Windfall Farms) Some sort of bizarre purple radish (from Northshire . . . → Read More: Radishes

Market Day!

The Greenmarket at Union Square was exceptionally colorful this morning.  Leafy greens are still going strong.  Plus, all of the bright oranges and yellows of fall are now in full swing, especially with all the pumpkins for Halloween.  Add to that purple eggplants and lots of random flowers, and you basically have the full spectrum.

At the north end of the market there was an assortment of every type of gourd you’ve never seen.  I heard on . . . → Read More: Market Day!
