Polytunnel Radishes.

 I pulled and tasted the first vegetables of the year that we sowed and grew this year in ye olde polytunnel:



Lovely Radishes freshly picked and grown without any manmade chemicals.  You can't beat fresh vegetables.   Their sugars had not turned to starches like so many of the supermarket vegetables.  They weren't peppery either and tasted delicious.

Have you harvested any vegetables yet this year?

  1. They are a good size Dave, I remember we used to grow very large long radishes that were great sliced.

    1. Thanks Briony. You could grow some in containers or even in a trough on the window sill.

  3. Thanks JayCee. They are quick to germinate and quick to grow. I grew mine in large plant pots full of bought compost. I think any one can grow vegetables if the use buckets or planters. You don't even need to have a garden. Thanks!

  4. I have picked about 9 servings of asparagus, still have several types of kale and tree cabbage producing, No crops from this years seed yet, apart from the small tops from excess asparagus kale sowing and one odd bucket of small potatoes I found.
    Seedlings all looking good and peas about 10" high so far.
    Getting difficult to keep up with potting on, already.
    The pots from supermsrket flowers are good for growing ,I find.

    1. Hi Kathy. I so wish you had a blog that I could follow and look at the photos of your set up. It sounds amazing. My local waste transfer station save me plant pots instead of them going straight to landfill. I am always looking for something to repurpose for a plant pot or planter.

  5. Dad always sowed radishes with everything; quick to germinate they marked where his rows were. We had some New Caledonia exchange students staying one summer who ate their radishes with butter on.

  6. Hi Tigger. We sowed the Radishes to mark where the Parsnips are. Radishes with butter sound different.

  7. As Joanna Lumley said, "Mighty fine radishes there Mr Titmarsh!". Mrs Titmarsh agreed and told Ms Lumley in no uncertain terms to stop fondling her husband's radishes. "Don't let them go woody dear!" the film star advised.

    1. I am afraid that my political correctness score would have been too low for that.

    2. Royston Vasey says in his autobiography Common as Muck. It's just a joke. Obviously I try not to offend people. But there is nothing wrong with having a laugh and a joke.

  12. I am surprised you are pleased they are not peppery, I like my radishes hot and peppery. Radishes are the first thing I ever grew as a child, a radish plot at the age of 8 I think. I used to get into trouble because the spot I chose was in the path of where the farm tractors wanted to run!
