Okay, confession time. I am not good at eating vegetables. They were not that common in our house growing up, and I’ve struggled getting over my phobia of trying new foods. However, I absolutely love gardening and canning. Because of this, I’m introducing new foods to my overall diet.

Each year when I’m planning my garden, I count on having my tried and true veggies (tomatoes, peppers, onions), but I also toss in a few new ones just for fun. Last year it was sweet corn. This year it’s radishes.

First batch of radishes

I think I may have found another vegetable to grow every year!  I don’t know if it’s because they’re homegrown or what, but these are the best radishes I’ve tasted. Much more flavor. I added them to my salad for lunch and even better, they received rave reviews from my husband.

They mature in 22 days, so they are perfect for succession planting. If I start one row every week, after three weeks I’ll have a weekly harvest.

Ready for slicing!

Now I need to find more ways of eating radishes. I never thought I’d hear myself say that!
