Radishes Or....????

Any idea of what these are? No, they aren't radishes. If you read yesterday's post you'll know I've been mucking around in the nether regions of the potato planter, pilfering early potatoes from the velcro'd door at the bottom.

These are French Fingerlings. Tiny, delicious little nuggets of perfection. Once your potato bush flowers you can dig out a few of these tasty morsels and treat yourself to the thinest skinned potatoes you'll ever eat. Scrub them clean and you are sure to scrub off part of the skin. Aren't these fabulous?

I could not longer resist the turnips either and yanked up this lovely fellow. We ate the turnip raw and cooked up the greens. Tender!

Simply served hot with a squirt of lemon, butter and salt. What could be better? Don't you love this time of year?
