Photo of the Week: Radish
At some point, Paul will write a more expansive post about this, but until then I’ll break the news: we have a garden! Or at least, we have part of it. Paul has a season-long plan for planting over a dozen types of vegetables, and the plant he started with was radishes. He planted them a couple weeks ago in an area of the lawn that he had tilled up. I took a photo last week after they the sprouts had developed their cotyledons and were starting to grow their first true leaves:
I’m actually surprised to look at this photo, as the radishes have already grown so much more since last week. I’ll certainly have to take some follow-up photos once they are ready to harvest in a few weeks. Also, even though it’s been my reality for over a year, I think this is the first time I have shown our sandy soil on the blog. I know Paul has added some nutrients to the soil to compensate — I’m sure he’ll be able to talk more on this topic. But the point is, so far so good! We have plans for carrots, peas, cabbage, kale and more over the course of the spring and summer, so stay tuned for more gardening updates!
