Here it is, the first thing I've pulled out of the garden. These French radishes are growing amongst my carrot seedlings. I use the radishes to break up the ground for the carrots that will come up much later. Radishes have got to be one of the most satisfying things to grow as they mature so quickly. The only question is, what do you really do with them? I like to eat them raw, but this orange and radish salad sounds pretty good, too.
