I had been picking a little already - the odd tiny tomato and chilli and handfulls of blueberries - but these were transplants and much like myself, raised in the city patch and placed into their new home here at Highfield. This radish is a native Highfielder.
I know that the radish is not especially hard to grow or especially exotic, but there is some special satisfaction in the first crop from a new garden and radish are so easily able to provide that satisfaction becasue they are such a quick crop. And they are both pretty and pretty delicious.
Today I picked a bunch of radish for a lunch time swipe thru home made hummus.
I have one row ready to harvest from, another with solid green tops and another row put in just yesterday.

Radish and rocket salad on the menu.
