Wow, nice radishes, Daniel!  I have some potted, but they're just "leggy". And I always heard "dem flowers is". You know why.

I actually got to work in the garden yesterday! Just pulling up old kale and Br. spr. plants, rake out some compost, scatter a couple of piles of leaves (saving most for my compost pile). It's still too wet and early to plant anything, although I'd like to get some potatoes in the ground. Patience, patience. Golf today!

Spud, you are very welcome. I write honestly about my respect for you.

Daniel, they are beautiful! And I bet they are full of flavor! I haven't raised radishes here either for years. I will get some seeds and give them a try. We are in much better temperature ranges these days. Haven't had your snow, Spud, but have had hail and graupel. Glad you got some rain, and hope it is slow and steady so as not to flood. 

Daniel, you put me to shame, I haven't been out in the garden to do anything other than just walk through and enjoy the structure of it. Lots of work to do and I plan to just puttttsss around. I feel fine and I just have learned how to ignore chores; kind of a mañana attitude that I developed this past year. Everything survived without my attention, so I don't need to be such an "A" personality any more. I like it.

Cute saying Daniel.  Cheating?  I should be such a cheat!

I haven't eaten any radishes in probably 30 years.  They just seemed to spicy for my palate.  Now that I like stronger flavors, I'll have to try them again.

I do remember my dad putting them on sandwiches that I liked.  Part of my lapse in eating them is probably laziness.  Perhaps just not getting into the habit for some reason.  I do (or not do) that a lot.

Hooray for the weather!  Between rain and snow, my garden received a nice 0.74 inch of water last night and today.

Somehow a big handful of radishes says "Spring!"

My mother always said
"Spring has sprung.
The grass has riz
I wonder where the flowers is?"

These were planted in the poly tunnel raised bed in January. I know that's cheating. But they are still home grown organic radishes.

Thank you Joan.

Of course! I watched many farmers in China and Asia using "honey buckets" and their food was delicious. I had concern about health issues, but I didn't get sick. Weary, but not sick. 

Good for you! innovation, experimentation, exploration! these are the qualities that make things better and challenges the status quo.

Joan, the NPK is similar to fish emulsion and it's free! Ning took to the idea with great enthusiasm. Once I researched, it seemed like "why didnt I do this before?"

The chicken yard is already lush and very green, so none goes to the trees there. Nature gives generously.

Spud, I just want to tell you how special you are to me, even if I don't respond to your many nice comments. I always read your work and treasure them. 

Thanks for the information about the sound being OK on your computer. It must be mine, then. OK, a new challenge to get on with. You know how much I like challenges. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 29, 2014 at 1:05pm

Daniel, you are ingenious. And such a natural thing for a gardener to do. Sorry I don't have the equipment to easily save mine. But what the heck, I can collect privately so what is the big deal? 

Gardeners are our best teachers!
