First Harvest from Seeds Planted

Post  rabbithutch on 6/3/2014, 1:27 pm

After a very late start, I finally got my kitchen garden TT up and did some transplants and started some seeds on 5 May.  Today I harvested a globe white radish that had been companion planted with my Celebrity tomato.  I just couldn't wait when I saw the rounded ball at the bottom of the stems.


It had good taste with only a mild peppery effect.

I also sampled the leaves.  They tasted very good and might be a great addition to a garden salad.  I've never knowingly eaten radish leaves as a salad.  Is there any reason NOT to do so?

TIA

Good and good for you.  Adds a zip to a salad.
