If it’s time to grow peas, it’s also time for radishes. These sweet-tangy ladies are so incredibly tasty when grown in your garden, and healthful as well. I use them as a snack during the day (doing take-out from the soil) but they’re perfect in salads as well. As luck would have it, story-bought radishes come in a bunch so big you won’t be able to use them all up until long after they’re fresh, so grow your own.
I prefer French breakfast radishes (shown above) for their flavor, taste, and size. Plant them, and they’re almost up before you get back to the house. Radishes are ideal for salads, long before tomatoes are ripe. I add them, along with onions, cheese, celery, bits of broccoli or cauliflower, and an array of salad greens for a perfect dinner.
Or just do take-out. Pick, wipe off the dirt, and munch yourself wide awake.
