Hodge-podge

28 Apr

This weekend brings us a hodge-podge of information, and we’re not talking about soup:

Remember the radishes that were growing? Well, they grew.

Home grown radishes

We are so grateful for the rain that came this past week. Our farmers, whose livelihood depends on equal amounts of  rain and sun, needed it. The produce is sure to flourish because of it.

And it’s not just the radishes that are thriving — the weeds are happy about the rain, too.

Got dandelions and purslane? Consider taming  those offending weeds into something edible.

If your weekend plans don’t include pulling weeds for your dinner, you might be interested in this local Richmond event hosted by Bon Air United Methodist Church. Tanya Denckla Cobb, UVA professor and author of Reclaiming Our Food: How the Grassroots Movement is Changing the Way We Eat will speak at Bon Air United Methodist Church on Sunday, April 29 at 9:45 a.m. in the sanctuary. The event is free and open to the public.

Or, you have two more nights to enjoy Richmond Restaurant Week. Did you dine at a participating restaurant this week? Tell us about it!
