Good morning Roy.  Good information for those looking to get some time in at the Kentlands pool this summer.

Hello Roy --- to many Californians, the idea of "opening" a pool is a foreign one but as someone who lived in the District for a couple of years --- I understand the significance.   How fun.  What a good informational post.

The Main Street Farmers & Artists Market Sizzles this Weekend
Summer is unofficially upon us, and what better way to welcome it than with a spectacular Memorial Day cookout? The Main Street Farmers and Artists Market has everything you need including great cuts of pasture-raised meats, fresh crab cakes, vegetables and desserts.  Once you've lit the coals and cooked your meat, it seems like a waste to let all that good heat go to waste without cooking something else. Grill mushrooms, onions, and even radishes.  When the coals cool down serve up fresh baked cookies and cupcakes for dessert and don't forget to set a pot of red, white and blue petunias on the table.   The Main Street Farmers and Artists Market is open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. under the Main Street Pavilion.  
Recipe of the Week: Grilled Radishes
Grilled radishes are bite-sized beauties that are juicy, flavorful and tender ~ a perfect summer treat to accompany grilled steak.
  • Radishes
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
Heat the grill to medium-high (375-400F degrees).
