Freakish fall weather has resulted in a national kimchi crisis, causing South Korean consumers to clutch at their purses, hearts and stomachs as they seek to deal with a shortage of the oblong-shaped cabbage used to make the ubiquitous spicy dish. With heavy September rains ruining much of the Napa, or Chinese, cabbage crop, prices have jumped fourfold to more than $10 a head. In response, the federal government last week announced a temporary reduction in tariffs on Chinese-imported cabbage and radishes in a plan to rush an additional 100 tons of the staples into stores this month.

Hutu death squads came to Gatete settlement in April 1994 to kill "Tutsi cockroaches." Speciosa Mukasine was digging radishes in the terraced fields when she heard the screams of her family being slaughtered by the militiamen and some of her Hutu neighbors. She hid in the jungle to escape. Mukasine, a younger sister and a cousin were the lone Tutsi survivors in their extended family of more than 20.

Horace Sutton wrote an interesting article on Oaxaca, Mexico (July 24), but I'm surprised he failed to mention an unusual event held yearly just before Christmas, the Festival of the Radishes. People carve radishes into unusual scenes, shapes, etc. Some of them are astronomical in size. They are judged and after that the public can view them. At night food is cooked on braziers and eaten. Following this the plates are tossed onto the street. It is a most unusual festival, and I am surprised it wasn't mentioned, but maybe the writer was never in Oaxaca before Christmas.

For dedicated gardeners, here are suggestions from the California Assn. of Nurserymen: Prune your spring flowers after they've finished blooming. Fuchsias and geraniums should be pinched back now. Start a regular feeding program for all areas of the garden. Plant some gladiolus bulbs now so you'll have beautiful flowers this summer. When planting radishes, corn, carrots and lettuce, do so in successive plantings to lengthen the harvesting period.

In 1980 my family took a ranger-led hike up Ghost Mountain ("A Feral Family Album," by Ann Japenga, Jan. 6). Our leader had read Marshal South's articles in Desert Magazine. At each of the stops along the way he regaled us with the stories, describing how the family actually grew radishes. At the top he excused himself to talk to a group of mostly local men, and soon returned quite excited. Rider South was there--his first time on Ghost Mountain since he had left 40 years before. And he agreed to talk with us. In the first few sentences he debunked almost everything the ranger had said.

Farmers markets that close seasonally typically do so in the winter, when fresh produce is least abundant in most of California, but the Palm Springs farmers market shuts down from June to September, in deference to the brutal desert summers, when temperatures can easily surpass 120 degrees. In winter and early spring, by contrast, the generally balmy weather attracts a profusion of tourists and snowbirds, and the desert (mostly the less developed areas of the southern Coachella Valley and Imperial County)

WHERE have all the pickles gone? It wasn't so long ago that every well-dressed American dinner table was bejeweled with an assortment of them -- emerald green tomatoes, ruby red beets and opalescent pearl onions, as well as less glamorous (though certainly no less delicious) okra, mushrooms and watermelon rind. The pickle tray was a standard part of a Sunday supper. Nowadays, almost the only pickle you'll find is cucumber.

IN the tree-shaded space where the Leimert Park farmers market is gradually coming to Saturday-morning life, shoppers sleepily sip coffee from nearby Fifth Street Dick's coffeehouse -- but they wake right up as they approach the Gourmet Tamale Factory stand, where handmade tamales (wrapped in the husks removed from the ears of corn used to make the fillings) beckon to be taken home for brunch.

HOME & GARDEN
October 6, 2005 | Tony Kienitz, Special to The Times
It is a sad, sad sight when everywhere we look, each garden that we see is from the copycat book. We wish we would find clumps of snazzle-poke plants, or shrubs of snick-berries or a tree that grows pants! "We want that!" we all shout. "Something different, something new! But how do we get it? Where? Why? What? And who?"
