We harvested the radishes and put them in the fridge with their leaves to keep them fresh

 

We have just harvested some radishes. They are small, but if they grow too big they become astringent.

When I harvest vegetables, not just radishes, I try to put them into the water as soon as possible. As well as keeping the mud off, I think it keeps them fresher for longer.

Most of the radishes you buy in supermarkets come with the leaves still attached. So I also store them in the fridge with the leaves on after picking radishes from our garden, which I think allows them to stay fresher for longer. 

The radish leaves can be eaten as well as radishes. I often pickle them.  They are delicious too!

Yesterday, I  chopped the pickled radish leaves into small pieces and added them to fried rice.
