*Does the happy harvest dance*
What, you don’t know what that looks like? Good. You don’t want to see it. You will get too much second hand embarrassment.
We have harvested our first onions and radishes of the season! And boy are they delicious! This was our first time growing radishes, we grew the french breakfast variety. Verdict? I need to plant these again, asap, but about 10 times the amount because they’re so good! We’re talking, snack happy radishes. They taste like a carrot, but with a bit of heat. They’re fresh, they have the crunch. They are perfect!
The great thing about radishes? They’re super quick to grow. In just one month you will have radishes from seed to harvest. Cool, right?
Then threw in some tomatoes, black beans and avocado. Put a little lime juice on top. Cut up a radish. It was perfect! It was exactly what I needed after a few days of eating not so great out of town.
Next up… the wonderful world of.. onions!
Disclaimer: There is one thing I don’t eat in the garden, that is onions. Since a child, I have been frightened of onions. Very very frightened. I’ve learned to love almost everything I’ve been scared of as a kid, but there are 2 things I can’t break: onions and mayo. Matthew, my love, is a onion fan.
Onions are pretty easy to grow, we start them from seed then I go through the process of separating them. One onion grows per seed. We grow onions year round, so there’s always some in beginning stages while others are finishing up.
Let’s check this beautiful onion out. These plants are huge. Not only are the bulbs a good size but the green stem is huge. It’s easily over 18 inches high. Tip: You can chop the green stem up, use it just like scallions. If my dad is reading this he’s probably swooning at the thoughts of growing scallions!
Then peel, chop, use however you want. I caught Matthew at the cutting board just chopping them guy up, throwing it straight into his mouth. Then his eyes closed. He was in onion ecstasy. Later that night we made homemade taco bowls, Matthew’s was packed full of onions!
So get out and plant some radishes and onions!
Are you growing any?
