Harvest #1 – June 23, 2013

It feels nice to get the veggies out into the community! It was a good looking harvest and a good looking crew helping out. Here’s some images of the scene on Sunday:

Lots of hands for harvesting in Little Mountain

Radishes

Often, I feel like radishes don’t get the respect they deserve – they’re easy to grow, quick to mature (28 days for many varieties), like cool weather, have punch-in-the-face flavour and delicious greens (perfect in soup and stir-fry).
