Early Foods in the Garden
One of the best things you can plant to get a quick harvest other than green onions is radishes. You can even plant them a little bit earlier provided the ground has thawed out from the winter, and you are able to prepare the soil with shovel or tiller. Radishes are full of vitamins and minerals and are a good source of fiber. The good thing about radishes is you plant them and in 30 days you have radishes. Now this may sound funny but have you ever had a radish sandwich? Just lay out two slices of bread and spread some butter on them, clean and slice the radish thin and layer it on the bread, put a little salt on it and you have a radish sandwich. They are very good, and good for you. Talk about a cheap lunch!
