Ode to the Radish

This year at Mistover the radish seeds Rob planted are popping up every day. If you have never tasted a radish straight from the soil, you are missing a treat! They grow easily in small areas and children will love helping to plant and pick them.

Below is our poem dedicated to the ravishing radish.


Our garden radish springs from soil

so fast you think it’s planning to somersault

straight on your plate.

Crisp and ruby red,

nothing beats the first summer crunch

of fresh-picked radish,

that peppery moment of knowing.

Ros Marsden
