|dried radish seeds|
Thanks to a post by my garden writer friend, Doug Oster, I learned this week that the whole radish seed pod is edible -- and quite tasty! So I went out and pull up some of the radish pods that were still tender and green and tried a few. They taste like - well, radishes! -- though a bit milder and with a hint cabbage-ness. I gathered enough for a cup full and will try them in a stir fry dish. Have you ever tried them? What did you think?
Elsewhere in our plot, the cucumbers are humming along, the re-planted soy beans are up (and protected from rabbits), and the tomatoes are covered in green fruits. Now begins the wait for the 'matos to ripen. With record heat this week and next, they may just sit and breathe for a bit. I am spending my time keeping things watered and chasing away baby bunnies. Starting the fall season edible seeds will have to hold for another week.
What are you growing and harvesting this week in your edible garden?
