So the last of the radishes have been gently tugged from the ground (except for the couple I’ve left to go to seed.) We had a pretty good crop this spring; I’ve finally learned to be ruthless about thinning…the only way to get nice big radishes.
I want to try interspersing the radishes with the carrots next time. The earlier harvest time of the radishes (25 or so days) allows you to thin the row to give the carrots room to grow (that sounds like garden poetry.) I’m not sure if I have a steady-enough hand to make that happen. Curse those tiny, tiny seeds.
I think we’ll eat this last batch by dipping them in soft butter and sprinkling with coarse sea salt. What better way to have our last batch go out in style?
I hear you about the thinning part! It’s hard to pull stuff that’s growing but it really is the only way, I guess. Thinking of getting a dedicated pair of tweezers to use. It might be easier… 🙂 Good luck!!!
Thanks, Lori! And I’ll try the tweezer idea! But still breaks my heart to pull up those little seedlings 😉
I couldn’t resist commenting. Well written!
