Since I had one year of gardening under my belt, this year, I decided to flex my gardening muscles and try some different varieties of the veggies I grew last year. It's nice to change things up a bit. I decided to try Easter Egg Blend of Radishes from Botanical Interests. In the seed packet comes a mixture of red, white, rose-pink, purple, and bi-color (red top, white bottom). I decided to pull some of the radishes, because the greens were getting so bushy and I didn't want the bulbs to get woody. I am so loving the white radish! It kinda looks like a teeny tiny turnip.
eat radish greens. Many of you asked how I eat them. Normally, I just like to saute the greens in a skillet with olive oil, salt and pepper. But I've heard that you can also make pesto or soup with radish greens. I haven't tried those recipes yet, but I want to! So next time you grow radishes, don't discard the tops... Eat them!
