Before my son tried the radishes, he asked if they were spicy. He remembered from last year. I also find them to be spicy. I tried to eat them raw and sliced over a salad, but Charlie is right — they are spicy.
Because I’m most familiar with lettuce, I’m less intimidated when it comes to preparation. I chop it up, spin it in the salad spinner, and then put it in a large pyrex container in the fridge. Then it’s ready for a salad at dinner time.
I just haven’t been able to get excited about the purple green.
On the other hand, I found the cabbage to be so beautiful.
Note: This school year, in particular the past few weeks, wore me out. At night I have tried to blog, but due to total exhaustion I have just wanted to go to bed or work on household tasks. Sorry!
