As I am getting ready to say goodbye to 2011, I am excited for what 2012 will bring. It was a gorgeous 53º here today and was 60º yesterday. I decided to stop into the garden and was surprised by something that I had forgot about. See photo:
The radishes I had given up on in September were beautifully growing peeking out from under a protective cover of fallen leaves. They didn't look very pretty when I pulled a few, however, once I cleaned them up they tasted fantastic. Really gets me dreaming about 2012 and the early Spring planting season that will be here before I know it.
I hope that everyone is having a wonderful holiday and had a Merry Christmas. Happy Gardening.

Your 53-60 sounds like a tropical holiday to me! We have been freezing here (Seattle area) and the rain has started. Amazing that you still had something to harvest. Happy 2012! Let spring hurry!

It was almost 60 degrees today here in Kentucky. So different from last year with snow on the ground almost every day in December. I don't grow radishes, but your look wonderful.
