Are there any garden items we don't like?

Do you or Mark have a food you just don't like and never have?


We are lucky that we both seem to like most of the same things.

Neither Anna or I care much for radishes...and have not tried to grow any.

Hi Anna and Mark,

I lady sheep farmer had the sweetest radishes this year. Plump, sweet, really good. So I asked her about it.

Plenty of sheep :).

So you might try some again when you get your soil good and rich.

good luck, John

I'm not a fan of raw radishes and never have been, but when I cook the hell out of them in dishes like soups and stews, I find they take on potato-like qualities (namely mouthfeel and absorbing the flavor of what its cooked with). I grow radishes more successfully than potatoes, so they've become a staple in my garden as a replacement for spuds.

I don't like raw radishes, but cooked radishes with their greens are the best vegetables in the world. If I could only grow one thing, this would be it. Saute the sliced radishes and greens in a little real butter and good salt and pepper until tender: oh, my. It's like a completely different vegetable. Mild, sweet, tender.
