first tender radishes of the season
The itty bitty radishes are starting to firm up and take hold in the garden. Everytime the seedlings sprout up and start to dot the vegetable plots with their delicate leaves, we know Spring is lurking around the corner.
Brilliantly colored radishes not only tell us that the weather is beginning to warm up, but that it’s time to indulge in radish green salads. Growing garden radishes means that there will be plenty of tender and delicious radish greens to add to our meals. Radish greens are often taken for granted and tossed out, leaving only value in the radish root. But when you’re able to get your hand on tender radish greens, they’re an extra special treat to the kitchen.
All our flowering peach blossoms trees are peeking out from winter’s dormancy too. All the buds are bursting and exfoliating their outer sepals and in another week, we’ll have huge explosion of blossoms. What perfect timing for these buds to start showing because the Lunar New Year is just around the corner . So many things are popping up in the garden now, these radishes and peach blossoms are just a start.
What’s lurking in your garden? Many of you probably still are under snow and ice, but hopefully soon there’s be some green popping out above the snow.
These signs of early Spring are exciting for us and this Spring is especially thrilling because we’ll be starting on our wood burning oven project!
