In Japan, where apparently more radishes are produced than any other vegetable, I have it on good authority that it is a grave insult to call a girl, "fat white radish legs". I personally think it to be one of the most fabulously hilarious insults I have ever heard, and wish it were one we used here.
It's been so long between posts that you could be forgiven for thinking that I had given up on my 26 days of planting challenge.
I haven't, but I do have to admit, it's getting a little harder to find things to grow as the letters dwindle in number. So when I saw a packet of oriental radish seeds, I didn't stop to even think of whether I actually liked radish or not, I grabbed them and ran.
Which was a bit of a mistake, because from memory, I don't like radish.
I might have to get over that.
So for those of you who are not familiar with the oriental radish, they look like the seedlings above. At least I hope they do, because I planted a whole lot of seeds out in one day, and am a little confused now as to which one is which. Let's just go with the above ones hey. As for full grown, on the seed packet they look like a white carrot.
Or rather like fat white legs.
