That is beautiful! Did you taste it? I don't like the taste of radicchio either. And apparently neither do bugs 😂. I had a row of it planted last year and while the bugs were devouring other greens/brassica, these expansion didn't have a single bug bite.I planted a mixed pack of mesclun greens over a year ago, and a few plants from the mixture persisted long after the lettuce was finished. Pretty sure this is a radicchio. I am not a fan of the taste of it, however the colour patterns on the leaves are really lovely-- especially in the middle of winter when most of the garden is either bare or brown.
I'm going to sell my two amaryllis plants at my late spring garage sale. Its just not worth the trouble! I got one stalk of two red blooms and they last less than a week. Bah humbug.
I have a "staycation" coming up, 10 days of DD's and DH on their cruise. I have been boxing up all of my jars with produce that is old and I don't wanna eat stuff in them.Generally speaking we try to consume our home-canned jams within a year or two but every now and then a few jars are over-looked, only to resurface once several years have passed. I hate throwing away food, but I don't want to become sick from eating really old home canning either; sometimes the jars sit in the pantry even longer, while I try to convince myself to toss them out. Here is a perfect example: this Plum Rum Raisin dessert sauce is 7 years old!
