the first harvest of the ghetto urban fire escape garden…

12 May

Success!  The first batch of radishes from my container vegetable garden from my fire escape.  These adorable gems are of the Easter Egg variety of radishes….a wee bit smaller than regular grocery store kinds but just as tasty.  You never know what colour you’re planting as it’s a mix of purple, red and white bulbs, all with white insides.  I was unsure if they would have enough room in my window box since it’s only about 6-7″ deep but it turned out great!  My packet of seeds contained 400 seeds so you’ll know there will always be radishes for the next few months at this house.

They are super easy to grow and are fully matured around the one month mark.  If you catch them at the right time, you can even add their leafy greens to salads or stir frys!
