The Mystery Root


Each year I plant some carrots from seed and this year I decided to add a row of yellow radishes in the same bed. They started to grow in a normal way and then these huge bean-like stalks started to grow up. It seemed like I’d planted some pole beans on accident, but when we broke open the “beans” they clearly weren’t edible. Last weekend I noticed one pushing out of the ground like a carrot so I pulled it up . . . and it was a radish after all . . . A cardboard tasting radish. Hopefully the next one tastes better.
