    what is it with growing radishes?
    I plant a couple of rows every year, forget they’re there and then end up digging out tough turnip like balls the size of an apple!
    Thanks to Joanna though for the lovely multi-coloured seed packet. I’ll be more diligent next year I promise!

    my comment was going to be ‘unbeetable!’ but on second thoughts
    I think we are talking turnips so maybe it should be ‘nips in the bud?’

    Oh, but they look so pretty. Are they really inedible – thinking they might be a bit like turnips and good in curries or something?

    Mmm, these look delicious! Have you been watching the Great British Food Revival?

    That’s quite a collection – shame they never taste quite as good at this end of the season.

    Greg – nice one

    Choclette – they probably would have been alright grated into salad but they were a little to fiery for my heartburn to be able to handle (ditto curry). And I just can’t get my head around cooking a radish (just like I can’t understand the idea of eating chilled soup!)

    Dan – I haven’t. Do they have giant veg on there?

    Fearn – I do actually like them I just forget they’re there. Hopefully you like them a lot then if no-one else will help you finish them…

    Janet – I’m determined to sow, grow and eat them next year. I may even have to put a reminder on the calender so I don’t leave lifting them until October

    Rufus – more like a tennis ball!

    Shaheen – you said it!

    Nina – one for the list for your new allotment space
