Radishes

Last night I harvested 5 radishes out of my garden and had the best salad ever.

I had no idea they grew so fast! Now I get to plant more seeds...wow!

I remember you talking about seeds and pesky birds. The birds got all but 5? You may have to start your seeds indoors and transplant! And here you thought sowing seeds was hard work. LOL Congratulations!

After we put a wooden bear 'statue' in the garden, the birds stayed away! I've known about scarecrows and owls but this scarebear really scared them away. I guess it's the eyes....

I have more to harvest but I'm giving the others a few more days!

teh YT loves raddishes too, top`n`tail em, cut a deep X in the top about 3/4`s of the way down, and leave them in Ice water for an hour.
then drain and dry, a little salt sprinkled on the X a second before eating it is Dynamite :)

Sabina French Breakfast are my faves to grow.

I like to add a bunch of the regular little red radish to other root veggies when roasting them. Many people have never heard about roasting them. I will have to try to find the radish soup recipe I got from my grandmother.

Sometimes I add a border of radish roses to a relish platter. (I slice off the bottom to keep them from rolling) Sometimes I've put a pimento in the center. A sprinkling of salt would be good.

What variety did you plant, HB?

I grow only French Breakfast nowadays. They seem to stay crunchy longer than other varieties, even when they get large. Others go "woody" too soon.
