First Fruits

Originally uploaded by ndmiller
We had our first garden salad last week--lettuce and radishes from our raised beds. I'm digging these Easter Egg radishes. They are multiple shades of red, pink and white and they are large and mild flavored. Of course, that could be just because it is raining and raining and raining with no signs of sunny summer days yet. Even the most stalwart northwestern souls are becoming a little weary of the grey, rainy days.

Here's to sunshine and local fresh food!

Just beautiful. I'm glad yours turned out. I tried from seeds, but something went wrong and I have no radishes. I'll try again next season.
Did you start yours from seed or plants?
