It is root vegetable season again.  It isn’t all just potatoes and carrots.  Root veggies are one of my only opportunities to have fresh food all the way through the winter.  I’ve been preaching about turnip roots for years; try them as a substitute, if only in part, for mashed potatoes.  Or celeriac is delicious.  Rutabagas are divine, albeit stinky.  How about kohlrabi?  It isn’t actually a root vegetable, but it holds just as long in cool dry temps.  They are like savory comfort foods, minus the warm cheese.  This next Call invites you to delve into YOUR roots.  Take a look…

“My research has led me to find that the word, ‘root’ has ties to mathematics, music, machinery and computers to list only a few. Without giving too many clues, I’d like you to delve deeper into the meaning of this word for you and illustrate this word through your photography.  It could be related to a source, the origin of a thing or being, a foundation, an anchor and lots more. Have fun and let your mind explore.” –from Susan Spiritus via
