Rainbow Radishes

Other than some lollo rosso lettuces, these are the first radishes to be harvested from my 3 foot by 3 foot salad bed. I am ever so proud of them. They are just so pretty that I would just frame them, but I must taste them too.
Washed, chopped and dipped in some salt and chilli powder...possibly...but only after I've enjoyed admiring them.


  1. Those are some beautiful looking radishes!! And I'm glad your back and blogging! (and hope you had a nice vacation!)

  2. Wow these radishes do look like rainbow.Home grown are always delicious.Enjoy them.Have a nice weekend.

  3. Those radishes really are beauties! Definitely frame worthy!

  4. Beautiful! This year I have only grown red ones!

  5. What a beautiful array of color. I can't blame you for not wanting to eat them just yet.
    I just finished spending a little time browsing through you wonderful trip through Cyprus...just stupendous! Your photos certainly captured the essence of this small fruitful island. I've been to Greece during the Spring time...and I can honestly say that it's my favorite time of year to visit. Cyprus, I can only imagine...must be quite the same. I'm looking forward to a visit some day ;0)
    BTW...I'm so glad you came to visit now permits to follow a very dedicated food journal such as yours.
    Pleasure to make your acquaintance.
    Flavourful wishes, Claudia

  6. I love radishes but i have never seen such lovely ones as those!

  7. What a beautiful range of hues in your radishes, Mango. I would step back and admire them, too, before washing and eating them all up!

    I have a variety called Watermelon Radish, which is almost ready to pick; supposedly it's white with a red interior. Radishes are such spunky vegetables!

  8. Beautiful! Isn't gardening awesome? I love when I can say, Look! I grew this!

  9. that is a beautiful photo that deserves to be framed - never seen all those colours in radishes before - you still have the green thumb even if your garden allotment is reduced in size

  10. I'm admiring them too! Beautiful - I've never seen rainbow radishes before, definately one to try!

  11. They look beautiful, but I bet they will taste better! Gorgeous photo. Like me, you see the true beauty of vegetables.

    Sun's out. Have a good weekend.

  12. What a beautiful range of colours!

  13. i have never had scant success with colorful radishes. urs looks really nice and pretty. Thanks for dropping by my blog

  14. It's a beautiful photo of some beautiful radishes!

  15. Beautiful have every reason to be proud of those babies)))

  16. Thank you Morgan.

    I enjoyed my break, but i must admit I am glad to be back home. Not so much work though, but bills have to be paid.

    Thanks Kiran.
    You have a nice weekend too.

    Thank you Rose.
    I've eaten them now. I'll have to save that frame for something else now!

    Little Messy Missy.
    Its my first year of growing these. Like you I had only grown the red ones. Do pick up a packet if you see them!

    Thank you so much for coming by Claudia aka Foodessa and for your thoughtful comment and compliemnts. I am so pleased to read that you like my blog and enjoyed the photographs from Cyprus. I have not been to Greece, but would suspect that it is similar.
    It is also a pleasure to make your acquaintance. You have humbled me.
    Thank you so much

    Thank you Darlene. I am so pleased that you like them. I'd strongly encourage you to grow some of these delightful morsels.

    Thank you so much Barbara. We think alike. I like!

    I have not heard of Watermelon Radish. I am looking forward to seeing it appeaearing on your blog. You will have to tell us whether it tastes any different to a radish as we know it. You right about radishes being a spunky veg! I like them, but my husband is not so keen on them.

    Gardening certainly is awesome Carissa. Better when you can say 'Look! I grew this!' but even better 'Look I cooked/made this'

    Thank you Johanna.
    If I ever get that big kitchen, I think I woudl print and frame this picture, but until that time. I will just admire it on my blog spac.

    As a grower I have been absolutely amazed at the diverse colours of vegetables: first it was carrots, then potatoes, then swiss chard, then beetroot, then radishes. Next it will be something else.

    Oh Sooz. thanks for looking at them with admiration too. Please do try to find a packet if you can. They are so pretty on the plate. They don't taste any different, but they will make you smile!

    Thank you Scarlett the Heavenly Healer.
    Of course they taste better, only because i grew them, but as vegetble grower you know that.

    You have a lovely weekend too.

    Thank you TheFastestIndian.
    It so nice to hear from you.

    Thank you B.
    I'm sorry to read that you've not been successful growing colorful radishes. That is unusual, as it should not be any different from the red variety.

    Thank you so much Wendy.

    Thank you so, So much Gardeningbren.

  17. Lovely home grown radishes!!

    My 2 coloured radishes are growing every day!

  18. What a great picture! Frame that and hang it up in your kitchen! Love it! Glad you're back! I missed your creative healthy dishes!! ;)Alyssa

  19. Perhaps not to the same extent as the Scots we Oregonians are fierce gardeners too. I loved your post and will be back often. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  20. Gorgeous picture, they really are beautiful!

  21. Thank you Sophie.

    Thanks for the welcome back Alyssa.
    One-day I will frame and display it in the kitchen. Just can't right now. My kitchen is really tiny and limited wall space - just like my garden plot - tiny.

    Thank you Mary.
    I'm actually Welsh, but have been living in Scotland since the late 1990s. I have no doubt that Oregonions are passionate gardeners too.

    Thank you Hannah.
