This blog used to be called Roscoe Blvd. I have expanded the area I want to cover to all of Palm Valley. Palm Valley is not strictly delineated and only semi-official. There are signs where you enter it, but it exists more in the mind than on a map. We aren't a subdivision. We don't have covenants nor a homeowner"s association. Roscoe Blvd. is the main thoroughfare with lots of little side streets. I hope to start recording more of it this summer.
Every year that we go to Provence I stop into Mr. Bricolage, a sort of mid-sized Home Depot and buy some Vilmorin seeds. They are sort of the French Burpees. This year I got two packets of radishes, one that ripened quickly and one a little longer. They have been an unqualified success. These are the first two to ripen. A little dip in sea salt from Marseille and heaven. Very mild flavor.
