Watermelon radish is so good! It is sweet with not to much heat. It's flesh is a lot firmer than regular radish so it holds up well in salads and marinades. It is also beautiful! I love to spiralize mine and make a pretty salad. Here's a website with lots of ideas for watermelon radish: https://www.yummly.com/recipes/watermelon-radish

The Christmas market at Landsdowne building starts this weekend! It will run Saturday and Sunday for four weekends. It's a great place to get all your presents and food for the holiday season!! If you haven't been, you should definitely try to make it out for one of the markets. It is very festive and fun! There is parking underground and you can offset the cost by buying at one of the stores (ie. stock-up on milk at Wholefoods or wine at the LCBO).
Come by and stock-up and says hi to your farmers! We will all be taking a turn!
We still have lots of floral mosaics and floral mosaic pieces for DIY projects. If your interested, email us and we'll hook you up! A little taste of the garden on these dark November days.
