Radishes!

I planted vegetables in the container garden 28 days ago, and yesterday I pulled up the first of the radishes.  Yay!  I’ll have one a salad for the next several days.  You can eat radish tops (lots of vitamin A, C, and calcium), though the fuzzy leaves wig me out a bit.  Everything else for salads is bought, but my lettuce and tomatoes should start coming in soon.  The first cherry tomatoes are big and green, and the leaf lettuce just needs a few more leaves before they can spare any.  The squash is starting to bloom, and extra male squash blossoms are good in salads, although I’m hoping for lots of crookneck squash to fry.  Not exactly sure how I’ll prepare the eggplants if they produce, but that will be a good problem to have.
