Radish First

103_2525

The radishes in the garden are growing great. The first ripe ones are literally popping up out of the ground! I ate some yesterday and again this morning with breakfast, they were delicious.

This is much better than the first time I tried growing them in the garden. Back then they grew OK but the taste was “woody” and terrible. The soil is much improved since then.

We also got to try a few strawberries yesterday as well, very sweet. Looks like the painted rock decoys are doing their job.

    Ours are done already, it was a long, cold spring and they didn’t germinate… then they grew really fast, and got woody. They’re already pulled out, but the good thing is… there’s always fall. Yours looks good.

      Mary Ann – I’m thinking I will try another batch once these are done as they only take 30 days or so. Do you know what causes the “woody” taste?

    I have not tried to grow radishes. I should, I like them, but never have. Go figure. The one in the pic looks good! We have some 8 ball Zukes coming on, however! Yay, decoys! I have used some decoys for various foodstuffs, with varying success…

      Cat – We had a lot of squash last year, this year we went all in for potatoes. I thought we had some Zukes in there but now I can’t find them.

  3. I didn’t plant radishes this year, but your picture makes me regret it! Yum!
