Black Spanish Radishes

Posted by Nika On September - 22 - 2011

I cant tell you how much we enjoyed growing these black spanish radishes! We bought them from the new-old Comstock Ferre, you can see their page here LINK

They were hardy, really tolerant of our fantastically variable weather this year (cold, wet, endless), only a few went to seed.

Here is a youngish one in the soil.

And then we has some really silly fun picking these godzilla radishes. We figure none of these photos of kids-with-gigantic-veggies will ever make the cut to be in a garden seed catalog!

    Fields near Clay Barn BridgeLast month, I got extra scions from the scions exchange to give my coworker who wanted to try grafting to some of the wild Plums in his property. Well, he bought a bunch of bear root fruit trees and gave me some of the branches that he pruned off. Thank y_DSC9572.jpgFebruary 18, 2017 at 07:53PM
