We don't need another cook book.

This weekend, my grandchild and her friend will visit me. They don't need cookbooks to appreciate and prepare good meals.

What they need is to taste real food right out of the ground, as these tender radishes.
The red roots will peak out of the ground in a day or two, begging to be pulled out.

We will wash the  plant, pop the entire root in  our mouths and enjoy the crunchiness and the spiceness of the radishes.
If they make it into the house, we can chop, slice or dice them, add olive oil and salt and pepper and add them to our salad greens.

Mostly, we'll appreciate the wonder of real food.
Raw food? As Martha Stewart would say: "It's a very good thing!"
What about you? Do you eat real, raw food?


  1. Everything tastes so amazing when it's picked fresh and eaten immediately. They will enjoy your garden and it's feast....enjoy watching them.....

  2. When we go to the farm, a 6 km drive, we come back with freshly picked radishes, lettuces, tomatoes, peppers sometime soon and zucchinis not to mention freshly picked corn on the cob that we boil slightly and eat with margerine and, in my case, sprinkled with black pepper.

  3. Love radishes and the idea of eating them straight out of the ground sounds beyond delicious!

  4. I do, I do! Tomatoes, plums, apricots and figs, straight from the yard!

  5. Yes!Small pleasures, tantalizing the senses. Many prepared foods, from sauces to cereals, are beginning to cause allergies and aggravating other conditions. We have to rethink convenience.
