We picked up our first bag of produce from our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm (Herrcastle Farm) last week and have been enjoying the good stuff since. Now of course everything is fresh and gorgeous and full of organic-y goodness. But these went beyond the call of beauty:

Aren't they gorgeous? I pulled them out of the bag and actually gasped. They are the most beautiful radishes I have ever seen. I googled "radish poem" because I wanted to see if anyone had ever been moved to write a poem about them. But alas no. I feel strongly that there should be something poetic said about this humble and gorgeous vegetable. So here is a little poem.

Ode to the Beautiful Radish

Your outsides are red
Your insides are white
Your beauty made me gasp
And you tasted just right!

Oh, the beauty - of the radishes and of the poem.
