Wordless Wednesday not so Wordless

Radishes out of our Garden. YUM! Of course I am the only one that likes them.
Radishes are a great source of vitamin C and are rich in minerals like sulphur, iron, iodine, potassium, magnesium, and folate. They can help clear your sinus cavities and soothe your sore throat. The vitamin C in radishes is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and has been shown to have a positive effect on asthma symptoms because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Potassium can help lower your risk of kidney stones and strokes, and radishes along a diet high in other fruits and vegetables can significantly lower your risk of multiple sclerosis. They help to maintain a healthy gallbladder and liver, and improve
digestion.Here is a website with more information on radishes. They are super easy to grow. I am going to have to plant some more as the rest of what we planted in the first round should be ready to eat this coming week since we have had some nice slow rainy days lately.
