Pretty and Pungent

Plant a radish, get a radish, never any doubt.

Hmmmm... where did I hear that? A warning to all vegetable painters out there: alla prima, schmalla prima; you'd better be able to paint really fast to catch that radish before she withers! I confess that, by the time I realized they were flagging, there was no way to finish so I substituted some silk greenery and forged ahead.
