I planted radishes in the spring. They are supposed to be a 30-day crop. So plant them, and harvest a month later. I spent late spring and early summer pulling up a radish each week to see if they were ready. No dice. No radishes, just skinny roots. Probably I planted too late in the season. Better luck next year.
Today I thought I would see if the radish bushes had any radishes. They were very large plants, with little white flowers. I pulled them all up. Mostly they were still skinny-rooted. But I did find these (with, of course, Buzz’s head for scale):
Note the one towards the bottom of the photo – very *ahem* suggestive. You want to see it close up, don’t you. OK then.
Interestingly, the largest radish was hollow and contained water. Now you know how to find water in a radish if you are desperately thirsty. Radish-flavored water, to be sure, but probably potable. Here’s the inside of the radish:
I’m not sure any of these will get eaten, as we also have radishes in the fridge from the CSA. But who knows?
