the radishes are ready!

rooftop radishes!

Let’s learn about radishes. The genus name of radish is the Greek word Raphanus meaning “quickly appearing”, which refers to the rapid germination period. Apparently they only take 3-7 days to germinate and can mature in as little as 3-4 weeks. Well, we just harvested our first radishes of the season the other day, and yes, they were quick to appear considering we planted them from teeny tiny seeds. Radishes are also nutrient rich – they are an excellent source of calcium, potassium, vitamin b6, and riboflavin.

at first we feared they too had been defeated by the over-pooification, but never underestimate the RADISH!

Come over to Georgia’s Place Rooftop and munch on some of this spicy root vegetable. Join us in celebrating its victory over the chicken manure!

who's crying now, chicken manure?


over-pooify this!
