Our garden is starting to produce. Nothing makes me happier than picking pounds and pounds of organic package free produce from a $1 seed packet. It is the ultimate budget helper. This is our third year so I am still a newbie. We are very good at growing radishes, cucumbers, tomatoes, and lettuce. That’s about it. This year we branched out to other things and I hope we make it work so I have more variety. My goal is to grow 365 pounds of vegetables this year, about half of what we eat for dinner. In a perfect world I’d grow like 1000 pounds and go vegan. A girl can dream. So let’s talk garden. What you’ve done right or wrong and how much money are you saving? These are our Philadelphia white radishes. It’s the first time I’ve ever grown radishes and they are so easy. The leaves are milder than collars, almost a kale flavor. The radishes are crazy spicy hot. I dice and cook a piece of bacon, then slice and fry the radishes and tops. Very good!
