Do you ever wonder what to do when this:
Well, we waited for the bees to do their work (they are still at work) and then we harvested these!
This is our third harvest of the day... yes, the day. Apparently the kid who was burnt out on radishes in May, changed his mind and now wants radishes. Well, we are planting some for a summer harvest, but in the meantime he is quite happy munching on radish seed pods. I am hoping to get some for planting, but I will be happy if he eats them all as well. They are yummy with a light radish taste. Not hot at all, if I ever get a chance to have some for myself, I think they would be good tossed in a salad. These are from a French Breakfast radish. (The crazy radish is about a foot long!!! I decided to just let it go and see what would happen, and we have a HUGE flowering "bush" that is producing a ton of seed pods.) I fed these to him to make sure he stayed awake on the way to my Tuesday group run, his words "Mommy, thank you for my radishes, I love them. They are my favoritest thing ever." Take that with a grain of salt though, everything is his favoritest thing ever.
But he is eating his veggies, and his little brother even likes them. So it's a win win! Happy gardening all!
