RADISHES!

WE HAVE RADISHES! WHOOOOHOOOO!
Here's the radish row. We start havesting them by thinning them out. You have to pick some a little early in order to give the other radishes more room to grow. We did this on Saturday.

Here's the first handful!


And the youngin's wagon full.

All trimmed & washed & ready to EAT. These radishes are called "French Breakfast".



This is my favorite sandwich that my dad taught me to make years & years ago.
It's easy: bread, butter, radishes, salt. YUM.






Oh it was so GOOD!
Since Saturday, we have had two salads & both had lots of our own radishes in them. And I've had more than one radish sandwich. :)

Today the radishes needed thinned/harvested again. It's a good thing, because the ones from Saturday are gone!
My dh & 5 year old ds went out between rain showers today & picked again.
The result is this 3 lb. butter bowl full!
WOOOOOOOOT!

Is there a fairytale/children's story that has to do with radishes? For some reason, seeing all these radishes makes my brain think there is.

Claire, I was drawing a blank on this so I asked some of my friends & Dana knew the answer! This is what she wrote:
" **rolls up sleeves of literary prowess**

RAPUNZEL!
the wife craves radishes and the husband steals them from the witch's garden which is how rapunzel gets locked in the tower.

**waits for applause** "

YAY! Applauding Dana! Thank you! :)

Lori, I had one for lunch! :)
