Today’s Harvest

26 Apr

Finally harvested a large handful of radish pods. I have been nibbling them off the plants for a week or so. They are tasty. Taste just like radish but less spicy.

Also harvested another handful of ripe strawberries. These were smaller than the first batch from the same plants. Here are the first ones!

Can’t buy these in the store!

The onion is the first one I pulled out. The neck was soft and the top fell over so I figured there was no point leaving it in the ground. Pretty impressed it is even this big as there were very few leaves on it. Apparently the number of leaves dictate the number of layers in the onion. My onions are from sets. The sets were about the size of garlic cloves so I did gain some net onion 🙂
