I just had the very first "harvest" out of my garden: a radish. It was about the size of a peanut M&M, but very very tasty. When I saw it peeping out of the soil, I couldn't help it. I didn't even bother bringing it in. I washed it off in the hose, and ate it straight from the green. I love radishes. I grow them for the pure joy of (almost) instant gratification. They grow in about 21 days. They make me feel accomplished, and they make me more excited for the rest of the garden. And, I think they are tasty.
