First Harvest of 2010

radishes from 2 Green Acres in Maryland
I always hate waiting for the garden's first harvest. This is the main reason I planted radishes. I am really not crazy about radishes, but they are one of the first things to come out of the garden in the spring. So I planted some.

I pulled the first ones out of the ground yesterday. And, I tried a new, great recipe for the radishes. It calls for watercress, but based on the comments from other reviewers, I used the radish greens instead.

The dish was simple and turned out great. Suddenly I am glad I have more radishes to harvest!


  1. Maybe I should try that with radishes. I like horseradish, watercress, rocket, arugula but generally plant radishes as some sort of decorative / companion planting. Looks tasty.

  2. Radishes look lovely; mine still need to grow some more before harvesting them.
    I have never had radishes any other way than fresh. The recipe sounds tasty!

  3. That looks delicious. I think in a week I'll be having radishes too.

  4. I need more recipes for simple vegetable dishes, this looks quite tasty and of course, healthful.

  5. Thanks to all for the nice comments. Epicurious also has a roasted radish and zucchini recipe that is good if you are looking for another way to cook radishes. Enjoy!
