I thought I'd try and sneek it in....as the weather is warming. But I doubt that I will get any harvest.
I have been growing perennial caps as well Dave but get a longing for something with a bit of thickness.I must try the Shishito. I also love radishes, they are great roasted with garlic, they need lots of water to grow well.
They are indeed, Christa.
What good fortune.
I've planted out two beds and have seeds underway for the rest.
After so long relying on 'perennial capsicum' the sweet pepper I'm growing now -- Dragon Roll/ Shishito-- is a generous pepper with a great crunch and flavour.
Such success gives me confidence as I pursue my addiction. I don't much care for the bell pepper -- which we usually refer to as capsicum -- because the flavours are more exciting in the slim and banana varieties.
Although the green -- and only the green -- bell pepper roasts up real nice when blistered and peeled.
As for RADISHES they do play funny buggers in my plot. The supposedly easiest to grow -- the Cherry Bell and French Breakfast -- don't thrive here and I'm primarily focusing on the Long White/Daikon varieties and Watermelon Radish.
As a kid -- which I once was -- the round a tubular reds were the core beginning of my gardening experience.Pulling a radish from the dirt and eating it there and then is one of the awesome experience of childhood. And since I'm the little boy that refused to grow up I am the Peter Pan of my patch fuelled by radishes.
Given a choice, and given my addiction, I eat radishes almost every day. I'm trying to grow some turnips so I can salve my preference for crunch with a different vegetable. Turnips are so underrated in this country.
Tonight's taco: egg with nopales and topped with radishes. I garden with my stomach.
