garden gathered bento

 
Hi friends! A bento with several elements from the November garden, to include wild arugula and tender baby lettuce mix (from an Italian seed package), "Long Scarlet" red radish (from Jamison's raised bed of several radish varieties) with a mildly bitey mineral flavor. Sliced Porterhouse steak nestles in a little blue bowl. A persimmon delivered by a friend and pink camellia from a large tree on our property share the photo...the luscious pink camellia blooms give me immense joy.
 
Speaking of plants, I visited a huge nursery on the outskirts of Santa Rosa today and had to take home another camellia--could not resist the deep pink flowers and musical name. Enjoyed seeing a splendid assortment of fruit and olive trees at this amazing botanical resource (Urban Tree Farm):
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hope you are enjoying autumn and all of its vibrant-subtle-vivid stages!

I love radishes, and your Long Scarlet looks like a beauty. I like the description too. (Sounds like wine tasting!)
