Radishes

Many years ago when we planted a spring vegetable garden, radishes were the first thing we harvested.  They were crisp, peppery, and bursting with flavor.  The cherry tomatoes and green beans also fared very well, but the carrots – not so much.

We haven’t grown vegetables in many years and now opt for flower gardens, but we’ll never forget the garden-fresh flavors of those little red gems.  Are you a fan of gardening?

  1. Yes; both my husband and I enjoy preparing our sunny spot for spring seeds of peas, beans and beets. We buy our acorn squash and broccoli plants rather than trying to grow them from seed. To prevent the slugs from getting to the new sprouts we have to put out slug bait even though it could be a threat for birds. It’s so rewarding and exciting seeing the first sprouts appear out of the ground.

    We have never grown radishes since in the past they aways end up wormy. The soil in your area might be more plant friendly, thus healthier, than our very acidic soil in the N.W.

  2. I grew carrots once and just figured I didn’t get any until I dug up the plants later:) Opps; no one told me that the carrots grew under the ground! Good painting!

  3. My parents always had a big garden when I was a child. My sister and I had to do a LOT of weeding… 😳 I had a few raised beds in years past – mostly herbs though. Now I plant a tomato in a pot! 😉 But I love fresh veggies and your radishes look incredible!! Good work, Carol!! 🎨👍

  4. Thanks, Jill! Weeding is no fun, especially when you are a kid in the heat of the summer. I have a few herbs too and love my fresh basil with tomatoes. Yum!

  6. I love radishes! We used to clean the house on Friday’s during the summer and my mom would make cream cheese and radish sandwiches. Ah, fond memories! Beautiful pictures Carol – thank you!
