When we left Nova Scotia, I was convinced we would never grow any food of our own again. I am happy to say, I was totally wrong!
In this little plot Reg has been growing carrots and radishes. He started the wee little veggie garden when I was away. What a sweetheart!
Recently we noticed that the radishes were getting a little large and wild.
Look at that sucker! When I saw this radish literally popping out of the ground, I knew it was time.
At dusk Reg and I harvested the radishes. The carrots take three times as long to grow.
What a beautiful little crop! By the way, if you have sensitive hands like me you might want to wear gardening gloves to pull them out. They came out easily but the leaves are a little prickly. Although Reg didn’t even notice, LOL.
I brought them in, trimmed and scrubbed them. I love that some are pinkish and there is one that is very purply!
I know there is more that can be done with radishes than just putting them in a salad but hey, why mess with a classic? Oh these had so much fire to them!
Reg grew me food. He said he used to grow radishes and carrots as a kid because they are the easiest things to grow. I can’t think of anything more beautiful he could do for me.
How is your summer gardening going? I would love to hear about it! Oh and if you have ideas for my radishes, let me know. We are probably going to grow them all summer.
