You know how I garden, right?
Well, add a newborn to that mix and the seeds you planted in your 38th week of gestation become sorely neglected for–well, forever.
I was so eager when I planted these radishes; I love me a small, crisp radish, straight from the garden. I think the little red, pink and/or white oblongs or circles are often overlooked, much like The Beast or Quaismodo in the early stages. But, a little buttermilk, a little cheese (radishes have a love affair with cheese, methinks!) or even a little harissa, and the shabby radish shines.
I’m not one to waste pieces of hard-grown veggies: one of my favorite kinds of pesto is radish leaf pesto. It has a subtle flavor, but one quite different from that of a basil-inspired pesto.
If you had a baby between the time you planted your radishes and harvested them (or just plain forgot about them–the radishes, not the baby) here are some of my favorite dishes I’ll be making in the next month to consume this baby-size bounty.
Did you notice that the largest radish is almost the length of my child’s torso? Good god, man!!
