    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?

    Yes, my most successfull year for radishes – and no one will eat them….

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

    Call that a radish?
    Oh !

  • 8. Shaheen  |  November 17, 2011 at 2:22 pm

    Monster radishes.

    Blimey – they are huge!

    Can’t wait to get growing some myself.

    take care,

    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

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #cookingwithkidsisfun #avocadoslicer #steeljiggers #stainlesssteeltongs #icecreamscoop #bakersdustingwand  #oxouk E's birthday is about 3 weeks after Christmas so I always start thinking about his celebrations around this time.  We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
