Harvest time!

After approx. eight weeks, my heirloom 'Easter Egg' radish are ready for eating!

I planted seeds directly into my veggie garden. They sprouted and were moving along quite nicely till Snowy (our furry darling boy)decided to use that particular patch of ground as his runway across the veggie patch! Several baby seedlings were uprooted or completely destroyed so I made a second planting.

Voila! After eight weeks, I have already picked and eaten a handful in salads and their taste was lovely! A little sweeter than 'normal' radish, but just as crisp and refreshing. There's still more to come......


  1. Oh well done! they look really lovely :)

  2. They taste that much better knowing I grew them myself!!
