Thrifty Thursday - Radishes

 It's time for Thrifty Thursday!

Today's entry - Deniska's home grown radishes.  

Both my boys LOVE radishes and will eat them like candy.

Home grown is much cheaper (and better) than buying in the grocery store.

Now, let me tell you about these radishes.

While cleaning out his room, Deniska found a packet of radish seeds which was probably bought years ago.  He asked if he could plant them and I said "Of course!"

He planted both packs of seed in planter boxes on our deck.

Then, we had freezing weather, rain, wind, cold, heat, horrible weather and good weather.

But, these little fellas just keep growing.

According to my little master gardener, these will be ready in 30 days! 
 (At least that is what the back of the pack said, according to him.)

If all of them produce, we should have a bumper crop from both boxes.

I am very proud of him.

He has big plans for us to have a big garden this year.  

He has a special touch with growing things in his little 12 year old hands.


  1. Love it when the kiddoes are excited about gardening. If the rest of your garden does as well as Deniska's radishes, you'll be feasting all summer! :)

  2. My son was quite the gardener like your son at his age. He grew cherry tomatoes, strawberries, peas, radishes, corn and sunflowers. It was such a good learning experience for him, not to mention being able to tell his mom a thing or two about how to grow things;-) Your son will be so proud to pick fruits and veggies from his garden. My son loved it when his grandma or I needed him to pick anything for us.

    blessings, jill

  3. That is awesome that both your boys will eat radishes - most kids don't like them because they're a little hot and peppery! I bet they'll have even more fun eating them since Deniska planted his own seeds!

  4. My Russian kids love cukes, but not so hot on radishes.

St. Therese, the Little Flower, please pick me a rose from the heavenly garden and send it to me with a message of love. Ask God to grant me the favor I thee implore, and tell Him I will love Him each day, more and more.
