Daikon for Everyone!

This is pretty amazing! At the "House of Hope" they are harvesting daikon (it is called something else in Korean). They dug this huge hole, then they put the rice stalk on the bottom, then they fill up the hole with the daikon and cover it up with more straw and then cover it back up with dirt. Because the temperature will drop below freezing, this becomes an outside refrigerator for the rest of the season. 12 inches below the earth does not freeze so the daikon will be kept fridge cold. This is amazing! We chopped off the tops of the daikon, then hung the stalks to dry in the greenhouse, and hand loaded the daikon into the hole. We are real Korean farmers.
