First Harvest- Radishes
The garden is coming along, slowly, but surely. It's been a huge time commitment to get everything in place and ready for planting. While most of the beds aren't planted yet, our last frost date is around Mother's Day, I have sown some cool weather crops that are coming along just fine. One of those is radishes! I didn't eat radishes growing up, but I've come to appreciate their peppery bite and Grace loves them! This year, I've planted several different types. Radishes are a quick and satisfying vegetable to grow because some varieties mature in as little as 28 days. Here we have Easter Egg Radishes.
I wanted to enjoy our first harvest by letting the radishes have their moment so I simply slathered a thick layer of salted butter on delicious bread and layered thin slices (a mandoline works beautifully) of radishes atop the bread. A sprinkling of salt is the perfect finishing touch.
