Open Pollinated Land-race Radish

open pollinated landrace carrots Summary
I grow my own variety of genetically diverse open pollinated land-race radish on my farm. I started growing my own radish seeds because commercial varieties were so unreliable in my garden. I select for plants that produce edible roots early, that are slow to bolt, and that don't crack. To maintain genetic diversity I also select for unusual shapes and colors of leaves or roots. The selected plants must thrive in my arid sun-drenched high-altitude garden and limestone derived lake-bottom soil.

Food Freedom

In May 2018, Utah's Food Freedom law went into effect. It basically says that people can make/sell food to each other for home use, as long as the buyer is told that it wasn't inspected by the government, and that the seller discloses if their kitchen handles common allergens. Home produced rabbit and chicken meat were included, but not pork, or beef. Raw milk has wierd rules.

What this means in practical terms, is that it is now legal for us to make food at home and sell it to each other without government interference.

Here's what a sample lable looks like. Everything above my name is not required.
