Harvest Monday

I finally made it out to the garden mid-week and pulled the rest of my giant radishes for a total harvest of 48!

Now the question remains, what to do with all these radishes?  I took some great advice from last week's comments and made a couple of jars of refrigerator pickles, but I still have a huge bowl in the fridge!  I guess I'll be eating lots of salads over the next couple of weeks!

I also picked a head of Tennis Ball lettuce and made a delicious salad -- I'm really regretting not planting more Tennis Ball.  The Merveille de Quatre Saisons lettuce is delicious, but a little bitter.  This Tennis Ball has such a nice, mild and buttery flavor.  Something for me to keep in mind next year, I guess!

Check out more great Harvest Monday posts at Daphne's Dandelions.  I can't wait to see what next Monday will bring!


  1. Your radishes look beautiful. Both Indian and Japanese food use radishes in cooked dishes - usually the long white kind. Its called mouli in Hindi and daikon in Japanese - might be worth searching recipes for those if you get bored of salad. Having said that I am particularly partial to radish salads myself.

  2. Your radishes are gorgeous! I haven't had much luck with them in the past, but you're inspiring me to try again with those beauties!!!
