i know they were too small but...

I just couldn't help myself. I've been eyeing the radishes for weeks. They are supposed to be ready for harvesting somewhere around 23 days after planting but lots of rain and too little warmth had slowed their growth this year. They are so close to being ready that I just couldn't wait any longer so I sent Sage out to the garden and after careful consideration he picked a few of the biggest he could find and we had them on our salad with dinner tonight. They were delicious harbingers of summery goodness which seems to be arriving a little more fully ever day. We planted three types of radishes each about a week apart so we'll have plenty more to munch on raw with butter and sea salt but for now just that little taste was enough. I found time to clean out my studio over the long weekend and I'm planning to spend the better part of tomorrow painting. If that actually happens I'll see you here with new work later in the week. But enough about me...what are you up to this week?
