Not literally the first radish I ever grew but the first thing I have grown from seed for many years since before the liver transplant and before the end stage liver disease, maybe 4 or 5 years. Ergo very satisfying.

While I have been focusing on berries and nut trees, there is also the impatient, need it now side  of me that demands immediate results hence the desire to plant annual vegetables. Of those radish certainly is the most passionate — hot and spicy and only a month to harvest.

Eaten as I wrote this, all that remains is the picture and its siblings, many of which may make it to full size — this one sacrificed young to my impatience.
