    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.

  • 9. Nina  |  November 17, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    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

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
