Radishes

My extremely delicious salad sandwich today included the first claytonia flowers, chive flowers, fresh oregano and the first 'French Breakfast' radishes!


But what's all this about, hmm?


They're not supposed to have cores!


Symptoms of dry weather, or pulling too late? Either way, luckily the taste and texture is still just fine.


I did the right thing growing French Breakfast this year - they're much gentler on the tastebuds than the ones I tried last year which nearly blew my head off! The other variety here is a 'Giant Radish' - they're not especially big yet, but these are just thinnings really. The flavour is nuttier than most radishes and they're supposed to be very mild, but they tasted pretty fiery to me! I'll blame that one on the dry weather too, I think...

We forgot to sow radishes so will be rectifying this. If conditions are too dry of too hot radishes can become hollow.

Thought that was it. Thanks :) Luckily it doesn't seem to matter much - they're still perfectly edible!
