An update on my tiny garden

I'm posting a few photos of my new plants that I took about a week or two ago. I was so delighted to find things growing. The radish seeds sprouted, my lettuces got bigger and nothing has died yet! I'm delighted.

This little fellow is my gardener. He mostly likes sleeping under mushrooms.

My little radish forest. I may need to pluck a few sprouts out of the forest so that the radishes can grow. Apparently radish sprouts are delicious, so perhaps they'll go well in a silly salad.

I'm just excited that my plants are actually growing, instead of shriveling up to nothing

Hi Lynnea - Radish sprouts are indeed tasty! They are usually nice a peppery. You have a nice green thumb, don't you?

Hi Kirk!

What do you usually do with radish sprouts? eat them fresh? I wonder if they go well in a quick stir fry for flavor? Yum! I love spicy greens.

Hi Lynnea - A salad would be nice...the strong flavor will do a nice job with raw fish....you know those sprouts in handrolls? They are Kaiware.....daikon sprouts....

Thanks Kirk,
I didn't realize that, I love those sprouts. I'll have to try that next time I make sushi at home.
