Thinning the radishes!

Short on space but long on radish seeds, Marash Girl planted a whole package of radish seeds in the tub holding her prize possession: anoukh (that's mint, for those of you not in the know.)  

Anoukh holding court with radish seedings.

Radish Seedings, Newton Corner, Massachusetts

Radish seeds are tiny and very difficult to plant 1/2 to 1 inch apart, as the directions require, but thinning the radishes is part of the joy of planting radishes, because each tiny radish seedling is like a drop of pure essence of radish.  So rather than transplant the seedlings to 1 inch apart, Marash Girl and Marash Boy transplant the seedlings into their mouths, sans root and soil.  

Pure pleasure of pure radish.

  1. Thanks for teaching me a new word. Hmmm, what if you served something sweet that contained mint and almonds? Anoush anoukh noush ... ;)
