You Can't Help but Grow Radishes

For the simplest, fast reward in gardening, plant a few rows of radishes. I am trying to be diligent about sewing some seeds every two weeks so we always have radishes for our salads. Hubby loves them in his lunch as a crunchy but healthy snack.

My dear friend Patti from Lemon Lane Cottage showed us that they make a wonderful bouquet. Radishes do need water or dry up quickly. Patti is having a week long of giveaways so head over to see her wonderful goodies.

Q picks them for me and puts them in this sweet old basket that always held little packets of sugar in my mom's kitchen while growing up.
 We eat the crunchy red bottoms and the chickens fight for the tops. I just read you can eat the tops as well but I prefer to watch the delight in the peeps out back.

When I was little I refused to eat salads without radishes!

I am addicted to raddish's. I keep them in the fridge all the time and eat them as a snack. I love them in the jar with the tops still on. I am sure the chicks adore them. Have a wonderful weekend. :D

I don't like radishes, but everyone else here does. I just picked some yesterday for a salad. They do look pretty. I never thought to put them in a jar with water. Very nice display!

We had so many I made radish's the link and it is the first recipe on that page. It's really good and I increased the radishes to 5 or 6 cups and remainder of ingredients I did not change.
