. . .and so it has begun..
the trek out to the garden and the harvesting of our own food.
Yesterday I plucked big handfuls fronds of delicate dill ..
and parsley and tossed them in the borscht.
After dinner in the tent. ..
and a enjoyable conversation between us ..
we walked out to the garden.
We disrupted an Eagle. . .and watched as it went to rest in distant trees.
I pulled out a large handful of perfect radishes. .
and thought immediately of slicing them up with some sugar and vinegar .. .
just like mom always did in the early days of summer.
OH. .and did you know. .
that radishes belong to the cabbage family which appear to reduce the risk of some cancers?
Radishes are high in potassium which is helpful in regulating blood pressure.
Studies have shown that radish root could be effective in lowering cholesterol levels.
Radishes and radish leaves are an excellent source of vitamin C.
Slice them up!
all for now. .
