This is going to be a great year for my mom's garden! I just picked the first big crop of radishes:

That's about a pound of radishes there! And there are more to come. Mom was sure the plants had died during the last cold snap we had, but she was happy to be wrong! The yummy sweet peas will be ready soon, too...and the beets. Yuck. I will never like beets. The lilies will soon be popping up everywhere, too. I think this is my favorite time of year!

OOOH! I want one of those radishes! and can't wait for the sweet peas!

I love beets, but only if I'm the one cooking them...:D...I think everyone else messes them all up.

Looks like a good crop!

Oooh, I was close to buying that variety! They look fantastic, KM!

I picked about 20 radishes today (eating half immediately, after dousing them in balsamic vinegar--yum!). Gosh, they're good. My spinach, lettuce and chard are going crazy, too. :^)

My snow peas are coming along slowly, though! I think they might need another shot of fertilizer, since they're on the high side of the plot.

I don't think I've ever seen radishes that shape before - I've only ever seen them spherical. Are they a different type?

Yes, but I don't remember what they're called. I'll ask my mom.
