The radishes are on the left, carrots on the right and cauliflower along the back row. The radishes have been super happy, and we've had quite a harvest of them.
Apparently our bag of seeds had some white radish seeds mixed in. The red ones have had such a strong zesty flavor, while the white ones are a bit more mild, but all of them have been super tasty. Much more so than any you would find in the store.
This weekend I decided to pull a few of the carrot spouts up to thin them out, and also to see how they were coming along. To my surprise (and delight!) I found that our carrots, although small, have actually turned into food!
We each got to have a teeny tiny carrot with our dinner last night. I was probably more excited about this than I should have been, but I just think it's so cool to have grown something edible from a tiny seed.
Our cauliflower has been growing like crazy... the leaves anyway. We were beginning to think that it had forgotten to grow the meat, but when I was poking around yesterday, I found a tiny little cauliflower floret in the center, so it looks like we will get something after all.
In the next couple weeks we plan on making a larger garden box and planting our spring garden, trying our hand at some new tasty treats. I just love gardening!
