I can’t say I’ll miss them. I grow radishes every year, but don’t like them.
Most of these have gone to the chickens – except for the ones Rachel turned into some decent bread n’ butter pickles. Those were good.
Any time there’s empty space in the winter, I try to fill it with something. Even if we don’t eat them, our livestock will. Kale, collards, turnips and mustard are all good in-between crops for the cool season… and yes… radishes are too. Nasty things.
Holy crap, those are some monstrous radishes there. What variety is that?
They're actually called "Holy Crap Monstrous Radishes" (also known as icicle radishes).
They sell them at Lowes.
They actually look kind of like big greasy worms in black and white. I like that effect.
I actually work at Lowe's, and come to think of it I do remember seeing them right next to the "Got-Dern Big Ol' Radishes" and the "Big Greasy Worm Radishes." I'll have to get me some…
Radishes when salted and fermented under pressure (Japanese style) make delicious pickles.
