Chicken Run

Joel tells us about the chooks. An added bonus… the first egg came just two hours after getting the chooks home. Those Isa Brown's are productive indeed. Then, just a few minutes later, another escaped our temporary enclosure to scratch out a lay station amongst the cuttings of shrub Joel removed to make way for the coop. Then there were two! Now all we need is the bacon.

French Breakfast Radish

Picking the French Breakfast Radish. Eating them minutes after picking ensures a wonderful sweet, yet peppery flavour. I am told the tops make a great addition to pesto sauces, for that lovely horseradish-like heat. Easy to grow, with a quick turnaround from seed to harvest in about 8 – 12 weeks. I plant a new row every 4 weeks to keep me in supply most of the year around.
