Last fall, I was very lucky to wander into the dollar store just when the clearance seeds were running. I don’t like to purchase dollar store seeds at full price because they just don’t germinate reliably and there are so few seeds per packet, but at pennies, what’s the harm in trying it? I purchased spinach, which I have already blogged about here, and a packet of radish mix.
I planted them in a row. After thinning them, I put the radish thinnings into a recipe! My goal is to waste as little as possible.
The radishes were ready for harvest in just a month. Here they are, sitting on top of my white yarrow plant:
I confess, they did not make it into a dinner. I washed them off and had them as a snack that afternoon. They were so tasty and zesty! (And I’m the only one in the household who likes them.)
