I haven't had much of a chance to enjoy my garden lately. Half of the time, I get home after dark. But whenever it's still light enough, I use Rosie as an excuse to pop out the back door after work to see how things are coming along.
As you can see, the radishes are happily growing, and now another crop is coming in--fresh, sweet, tender young peas! I love growing peas; they pop up so fast, climb up the trellis with their delicately twisting tendrils, and flutter their pretty little white flowers in the spring breezes.
I thought I'd make myself a lovely little appetizer to snack on while I start on tomorrow's lesson plan.
Cute, huh? Well, lemme, tell ya, I was in for a surprise. While the radishes have been getting bigger, they've also been getting stronger. Magnitudes stronger. Whoo-whee, they are the snack that'll bite you back! The peas are a nice, sweet and soothing contrast, but as you'll notice, there aren't many of them to even out those snappy radishes.
Which means I have most of a couple of sliced radishes still hanging around, looking for a salad to adorn!
Ok, back to work!
