I’ve had my first harvest from my balcony garden: radishes! Specifically, they were Easter Egg II radishes, and they were delicious! I ate them sliced thinly in a green salad, and they were just perfect: crisp, with a nice firey edge to them. Everything a radish should be. I immediately put some more seeds in! There are other signs of progress in my container garden. Lots of the herbs are close to being ready for harvest: parsley, dill, cilantro, thyme, and chervil. Lots of others are green and growing. There are also signs of flowers, although none of them have actually opened yet (perhaps tomorrow?): black cherry tomatoes, Morning Glory, and Sweet Peas all look very close to actually flowering. I’m particularly excited about the black cherry tomatoes. They’re an heirloom that I scored in a swap with one of my labmates, and I’m sure they’re going to be very tasty!
