As you’ll have seen from my recent posts, my kids are on their summer break from school (six whole weeks, woop, woop!) and the weather in Denmark is fan-flippin-fantastic (upwards of 25 degrees and sunny most days). Which means that it’s time for me to clear off my blog desk and take a (well deserved) break! So you’ll just have to do without me for a couple of weeks… 😛
I leave you with a (terrible) joke that my DDDFIL (dearly departed Danish father-in-law) always told whenever there were radishes on the lunch table. And – as DDFIL loved radishes – that was extremely often! 🙂
What can the Danes do that the Swedes can’t do? Grow radishes in the national colours! [In case you didn’t get it…the red and white of Dannebrog, the Danish flag).]
See you on the other side of the summer holidays!

I'll miss your posts – but look forward to seeing them when you come back. Enjoy the summer! x
Speaking of vegetables in national colors, there is a reason why carrots are called gulerødder in Danish — because historically common carrots were more yellow in color. However the Dutch, those agricultural show-offs who settled in Amager and proceeded to show the Danes how to farm more efficiently, created a popular orange-colored hybrid to compliment their royalty — the House of Orange.
Thanks, Bill – interesting story!
