With mild temperatures throughout the winter months (a sign of the changing climate), I gambled and sowed lettuce and radish seeds in the month of February!
I’ve recently discovered a love for radishes, which I’m finding isn’t shared by a lot of people. I like to slice them paper-thin and put them atop salads – they add such a beautiful glow and crunch. And they’re so easy to grow! Do you enjoy radishes?
By mid-March, the lettuce seeds were turning into large plants and needed thinning, and I started a second batch of seeds. Both generations have done marvelously, and we have enough lettuce to feed an army around here.
I also had a delightful surprise – 2 volunteer carrots from I-don’t-know-when! I think I may have planted these seeds two spring seasons ago. While the resulting carrots were only enough for one serving, I loved watching them grow and think I may have to add carrots to the permanent rotation.
