Garden's first offerings


We went to check on the garden on Monday after we got home, and we found some large French Breakfast radishes ready to eat. I was surprised, since it has only been a month, how big they are. We'll pull some more for dinner tonight. Even Red Chief likes them!

  2. Wow!! Those are pretty good size. Are they spicy like regular radishes?

  3. It's cool how fast the radishes come, isn't it? That's why we planted ours through the pie pumpkin hills. We knew they'd be harvested before the pumpkins started spreading. You can plant a few radishes every week or two and then get to harvest them all summer long, but they're just not that popular in our house. I'm not a big fan of anything spicy.

    Those look really pretty and big!

  4. Yay for radishes! I only had 1 big enough for eating out of all that I planted. (although I know you can eat them when they are small shoots) A few went to seed, so I'm hoping there will be more come spring. We did have some snap peas ripen. I put them in hubbys lunch box.

    Our tomatoes are just about ripe. The first 3 to ripen had blossom end rot and had to be tossed, but all the rest are coming along beautifully. Especially the Oregon Spring variety. They seem to like cool springs (thank goodness as ours was cold!)

    Enjoy the fruits of your labor... or vegetables :)

  5. How awesome! I am not really sure that my okra will ever come. Oh well, hopefully next year I can do better.

  8. YAY! How exciting for you! I'm not a big fan of radishes but if these aren't that spicy maybe I should try them out.

  9. Can I say Yay! too? I love to plant radishes becuase they are so reliable,even if nothing else grows in the garden, you can always count on radishes! Enjoy!

  10. They look tasty. I wish our garden could produce some veggies - I know it would be more fun for the kids to eat them knowing that they grew them. We tried one yr and I guess our soil was so bad the carrots were skinny little things and the tomatoes insignificant. But we've worked on the soil this year and MAYBE next year we could think about veggies.

  11. Wow! That is great! We are enjoying our herbs, but I am waiting impatiently for those tomatoes to turn red. They look so yummy that I am having a hard time resisting. Great job!
