Photo – Radish – Ostergrus Rosa. A very old classic German heritage variety of radish who’s name ‘Ostergruß‘ roughly translates to ‘Easter Greeting’. It’s a reliable grower in colder climates and is good for an excellent tasting crop in about 5-6 weeks through the whole winter period here in the Blue Mountains. It has a nice crunch and a distinct radish flavour without too much ‘bite’ which means it can be used for pickles and not get too overwhelming. They can get very large if left in the ground to fully develop and will approach classic Daikon size if growing in good soil. The leaf is not too spikey and can be eaten in salads too unlike some other radish.
We are allowed to go back to meetings in our Bullaburra Hall venue. Due to the change of health guidelines for public venues use we can at last start our meetings again onsite.
HOWEVER we are still officially social distancing!
So we will be sitting well spread out and also carefully limiting our personal interactions onsite as per the Health guidelines we have all come to know this year.
The Bullaburra Hall organising committee requested Guidelines –
“We ask each Group to be familiar with the NSW Govt requirements and follow these which currently limit gatherings to 10 people maintaining social distancing. We also ask each group to bring their own hand sanitizer and disinfectant to wipe down surfaces before and at the end of the meetings.”
Hopefully it’s a long goodbye to Covid19 in NSW Australia and we can get back to growing things and saving seeds and talking about plants again.
It’s that time again!
This is just a quick reminder that the next scheduled meeting for the year of the Mid Blue Mountains SeedSavers is on at the Bullaburra Progress Hall in a few weeks.
