I’m on vacation, so please accept my apologies for the brief entries. — Daniel.
A big thank you to farming john@Flickr, aka John Lomen of Red Lake Organic Farm, for today’s photograph. If you’re a local and you step in to the Kamloops Regional Farmers’ Market, do tell John “Hi” from all of us here at BPotD. And, don’t forget to support your local farmers! If they grow organic produce, even better!
As noted by Wikipedia, radishes have been domesticated and cultivated since pre-Roman times. The NY Times, in “Hail the Speedy Radish, in All Its Forms” places the origin to at least 7th century BCE in China.
A radish growing guide is available from Cornell University. The guide includes a list of a few cultivars; I believe one of the varieties in today’s photograph is ‘Cherry Belle’, a popular North American cultivar.
