Radishes

Ok, so not everything is doing poorly in my garden. I planted radishes from seed, and in 20 days, yes, I had a whole crop of radishes ready to go. They are quick, easy, and low maintenance. And they taste so much better than what you get at the store, spicy and juicy. As I mentioned previously, I had a successful winter harvest of beets (not so successful with my second crop). Now I have radishes, scallions and snap peas. The cooler weather helps these guys along.

Funny thing,my radishes did not do so well this year. Yours look lovely. I love fresh radishes, I love to eat them while I'm weeding the garden. Have you cooked your radishes before? I love to saute mine with greeen beans and olive oil. So delish.
P.S. My class went great, thanks for asking! I will be posting the recipes in the next couple of weeks.

Beautiful! Mine are still rather small. I'm trying to be patient!

Love the growth!

Hey Nirmala, your radishes look so healthful and beautiful. I planted these too in my Mom's garden to nitrogenate the soil. I didn't know if anyone would like them or eat them, but everyone says what you say about them.
I suppose a guessing game is how it is every year. For example, last year at this time we had so many eggplants we didn't know what to do. This year, no eggplant (weird)!

OOOooo! Your radishes are beautiful :) Once I move into my new home i will need gardening tips from you, I can't wait to grow my own veggies!

I'm glad to know these grew so beautifully! I'd love to have a garden but a) we don't have a yard and b) I've managed to kill even the bamboo sitting on my desk :)

These radishes look amazing, and I can't believe they are ready to pick in 20 days! I will definitely plant some in the future for sure. Are you planning to make a special dish with them, or just eat them raw with some salt? :)

Roasted vegetables, the best for me. I envy that you have a green thumb, not me, black thumb actually.
