I tried to get a picture to show the radish was almost the size of a 5 year olds head!

Maya at Maya’s Farm, where we found the radish, suggested she flip the root around and hold it like a baby – Genius!

Until we took it home….

It became a Delicious sautéed side!

RECIPE: “Home Fry” Local Radish & Greens:

Wash & chop the radish & leaves

& place them in separate piles.

Then heat the pan, add oil & salt.

When the pan is hot, place the chopped radish pieces in.

Sauté the pieces like home fries,

until they were getting golden or crispy.

Remove the radish pieces & sauté the radish greens with a little bit of salt & water.  

When the greens are soft & tender, but not over cooked, place them on a dish with the “home fry” radishes on top – Ready to Eat – Delicious!

“In the multitude of words there certainly are mistakes.

It is difficult to get a good word; it is easy to give a bad one.

And much mischief come from opening the mouth.”

“Plant Your Seeds.  Protect Your Gardens.  Protect Your Whole Body.”

Today the little one in our lives shared a little insight.

We were creating a flyer.  I asked her, “What would you like to tell people?”

She said: “Plant your seeds, Protect your gardens, Protect your whole body.”

She paused for a moment… and asked me, “Did you write all that down?”

I smiled and said, “Yes.”

The Virtue of Practice is Revealed in Diligence

After seeing the little girl, who had never seen a phoenix before, the Queen Phoenix descended from the heavens to put her draw one…

“With a flourish of sparkles and stars, she swooped down to earth and gracefully landed…The Queen Phoenix said, “I will stay with you all day so you can draw me.  After that you must continue to practice very hard on your own.”

The diligence of practice yields its own fruit.  

Deliberate practice helps us become aware of the outcomes of our actions.

With the gift of the Phoenix’s presence as a guide for the little girl’s drawing….

will she be diligent in her practice on her own?

How often do we truly take to heart and practice, the good advice and kind offerings of others?
