Yesterday, DW was watching a YouTube video on a very nice garden through the early part of its season.
She was impressed by the nice growth and care. However, she began laughing at how often the person narrating said, "my." Everything mentioned was my tomatoes, my lettuce, my radish, my onions. I think it just showed how completely the gardener was focusing on everything as food!
If I was watching those seeds sprout and grow in that pot, the moment there seemed to be any faltering of growth - I would pull them all and put them in a stir-fry!
- Pea vines taste like ... peas!
Radish can be cut up and used whole.
If my late-sown snow peas are running out of growing season in the fall, I often begin harvesting about 8" from the end of the vines. Tiny pods are fine and flowers especially indicate that the pea tendrils will be nice and tender.
I used to save seed from a Russian white radish which was somewhat unusual in that its radish leaves didn't have those tiny hairs. After using this variety, chopped and in stir-fries for several years, I tried other radish varieties. Those tiny hairs disappear
during cooking! It made little difference which radish variety I used. And, they were all very good in stir-fries!
We are each other's harvest; we are each other's business; we are each other's magnitude and bond. ~ Gwendolyn Brooks
