Soap in the kitchen

As we head into the darkest time of year, here in the North Eastern US, we nest, cook, eat and celebrate. Usually we do all of this celebrating with lots of people, at lots of gatherings, in many places. This year, most of us are focusing on home, family, and our nucleus.

Here's how I use soap in the kitchen. Kitchen soap

Rutabaga Curl 12/19/20

If you've never curled, this is usually a game played on ice with these tea kettle looking pucks, that you slide in an attempt to hit a target in a concentric circle court. Sort of like shuffleboard or bowling.

We, at The Ithaca Farmers Market's International Rutabaga Curl, have an agricultural twist and play with regulation rutabagas. These are grown specifically for the game. You can come as your own hand picked team, a protester, a cheerleader, a single player, a spectator.

Dress in costume, sporting attire, headdress. Whatever strikes you as appropriate for the player you wish to be. This is another occasion where masks can be fun.

We have had teams travel from the other side of the world to play and been featured on NPR's "It's only a Game"

Dress for the cold temps. This is a winter sport. Our court is in the market pavilion. I have no idea how things will play out this year, but usually there's a fire to warm your hands, and venders feature hot cider and hot chocolate, and rutabaga treats.

All ages welcome. Prizes. Lots of laughing. Rutabaga Curl
