@solitarybeeweek - the answer is Sea Radish or Raphanus Maritimus.
I’d never heard of Sea Radish or really been aware of it before @rebeccabrutontextiles made her companion piece. And I was so excited when I saw it this week because it really highlighted what the FIFTY BEES project is all about, to make us all more aware. It’s certainly made me look at the natural work with totally fresh eyes, and I know that for many visitors to the two exhibitions so far, that’s what they’ve felt too. So huge thanks to Becky for this piece.
This is what she said:
“Having researched the beautiful Violet Winged Mining Bee and its habitat I decided to focus my companion artwork on the Sea Radish. This bee almost exclusively collects pollen from this unusual and fascinating crucifer and so it is absolutely vital to its ecology. This striking plant with its long tapering seed pods is predominantly costal, thrives in sandy soil and is a foragers favorite. As my artwork is a response to the ecology of our bee it felt important that I used only natural materials. I made my own dyes to add colour to cotton fabric. Brussels sprouts for the green, part of the Brassica family just like the Sea Radish. For the yellow I used bee pollen! I’ve used pure cotton thread in the ‘drawing’ of my Sea Radish artwork to replicate the delicacy of the bee’s ecosystem.”

Here is our article on Sulforaphane - the anti-cancer and cancer preventive properties of cruciferous vegetables, particularly broccoli and cauliflower!
Written in detail by our CEO and Founder, Dr. Sahin, our article provides you with the latest research, including health benefits of broccoli on diabetes, obesity, and autism.

Brassicas (members of the cabbage family of veggies) are also sometimes called “crucifers” because of their four-petaled, cross-shaped flowers. This family includes broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, mustards and kohlrabi, to name just a few.

My cabbages are as pretty as any flower. #cabbage #crucifers #nashville #nashvillegarden

They used to teach me we are all the same no matter what the color of your skin. As a child I was so excited and dreamish about meeting people of all the colors. I guess I'm still waiting for the pinks, blues, reds, yellows, greens, purples to show up ❤💙♥💛💚💜
Have a nice Sunday everybody 💓

No, it's not a message from spirit, lol, not a direct one anyhow, simply one of Tom's brilliant dinners! Thanks Tom!

Here is my completed @fifty_bees art piece before framing. 🐝

Research, sketches and prep work done, time for the making of my @fifty_bees piece and bringing my image of a Sea Radish to life. Here are some snippets of that process from sewing through my sketch to mark out my shapes, to adding detail into my natural hand dyed fabrics with cotton threads and then appliqué to layer up the colours.
The next photo I share with you from this project will be the finished piece 🤩🐝 #fiftybees #beeartist #fiftybeesartist #searadish #crucifers #brassicas #plantdyedfabric #naturaldye #cottonthread #ecology #environment #habitat #freemotionembroidery #freehandmachineembroidery #applique #drawingwiththread #sewnart #textileart #fibreart #textileartist #rebeccabrutonart #savethebees #bees #bee

Rolling this up to eat...greens with roasted broccoli and cauliflower. A little almond cream cheese and harissa from Judi's Oasis. Jason does the same thing but with hummus instead of the cream cheese.

Finally tried out the cauliflower pizza scene tonight! Recipe:
1 small head cauliflower, cut into florets
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp rubbed sage
1 tsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
Toppings!
Preheat oven to 400. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Pulse cauli in a food processor until its in fine crumbles. Place it in a towel and squeeze out as much water as you can. In a medium bowl, mix the cauliflower with remaining ingredients. Divide the mixture in half. Place half on the sheet with another piece of parchment on top. Flatten into a circle. Repeat with the other half. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Add your toppings and bake another 10-15 min. Enjoy! #cauliflowerpizza #crucifers #freshmozz #primal #freerangeeggs #keto #lowcarb #slowcarb

S is getting pretty good with the chopped salads. He "upgrades" them each time and puts a lot of thought into each ingredient. Recently he started adding broccoli after finding out that #crucifers are good for our livers and hearts.
