Peeps Week: Bouquet of Peeps (Bopeep?)

Erin Zimmer 6 comments

What happens when we buy $35 worth of Peeps? Peeps Week 2011. We've celebrated the last two years, but there's always room for more Peepsperimentation beyond the predictable microwave abuse. This Easter, show someone you really care with a bouquet of Peeps. (Bopeep? Pouquet?) Just imagine the look of glee on their faces when you whip out from behind your back, a bundle of bright, gorgeous flowers—with Peeps stuck to all the centers. More

Market Scene: Everything's Coming Up Orange in California

Market Scene Leah Greenstein Post a comment

Note: On Mondays, one of our various Market Scene correspondents checks in with what's fresh at farmstands, what's coming up, and what you better get while the gettin's good. This week, we hear from Los Angeles correspondent Leah Greenstein of SpicySaltySweet. Take us to the market, Leah! Persimmons from Peacock Family Farm. If fall had an official color—like poppies are the official flower of California, Humuhumunukunukuapua`a is the official fish of Hawaii and Crocs are the official shoe of Mario Batali—it would have to be orange.

Here are some of my favorite... More

Adam Kuban 3 comments

Rosa 'Julia Child' Wow. Nice find, gutreactions! Julia Child apparently chose this specific rose cultivar, hybridized by Tom Carruth of Weeks Roses, to bear her name. "Julia loved the even butter-gold color and the licorice candy fragrance." This rose has a rounded habit and excellent disease resistance, raising the bar for any English-style rose. Julia Child also features a sweet licorice perfume that exudes from each fully petaled flower, as well as a butter-gold color that’s perfectly suited to any landscape. For rose aficionados out there, its parentage is "[(Voodoo x R. soulieana derivative) x Summerwine] x Top Notch," and is hardy in Zone 5 (or Zone 4, with winter protection). [via Talk]... More
