What’s a Radish? It’s a root vegetable and our Biannual Newsletter!
My fellow Cooperators,
As every advertisement that fills our screens and airwaves can’t help but tell us (repeatedly and at every opportunity) — we’re living in an unprecedented time. I hope you, your family, and your friends are now — and remain — safe, happy, and healthy. If you’ll indulge me, though, I’d like to change the subject for a moment:
Twice a year the Littleton Food Co-op produces a printed newsletter we affectionately refer to as The Radish — named for our logo which is also a root vegetable and which also happens to be a radish. When the COVID-19 crisis derailed a lot of our day-to-day we took a hard look at our marketing schedule — said “heck it” — and barrelled ahead. In our opinion, you — the good people of the Cooperative — deserve your Littleton Food Co-op news on time with bells on. So we did what we do and we made it happen!
You can grab yourself a copy of The Radish on your next quest to the Co-op, or you can check it out online now by *clicking here*
This time around we have:
• An Update on Current Goings-on from our Photographoperations Manager, Chris Whiton.
• We heard you like houseplants.
• I can’t fully explain this piece without ruining it — but it could be the Greatest Pokémon/Dr. Seuss Crossover of all time.
• The Monthly and Full totals on this year’s Partner of the Month (Y.T.D. 2020)
• Meet the Candidates 2020!
• Your nice words printed in our nice newsletter.
• Some new herb, spice, and seasoning recommendations to get your creative culinary juices flowing.
• Although this author would gladly advocate for the abolition of asparagus (were he asked, of course), we do have a really great write-up on the serendipitous time that is Asparagus Season — or, as I like to call it — Spring.
• My office has received information that we are also featuring three Asparagus recipes that — people who willingly consume Asparagus have advised me — are pretty easy and very delicious.
Many thanks to all of our contributors this issue including Chris Whiton, Becky Colpitts, Melissa Bridges, Customers and Members Like You, and Annie Stuart!
I’d also like to take a moment to thank Sherwin Dodge Printers (Littleton, N.H.) for being the rockstars they are and printing the Radish for us in the middle of an international health crisis. We couldn’t have done it without them — be sure to give them a buzz should you need something printed.
That’s all folks! Stay safe, eat local, and Read the Radish!
