Loyal readers of ThingsThatWeDo.com, you know by now that I don’t have much of a green thumb. I’m adventurous (sort of) but green thumb is not something I can add to my resume with confidence. Yet, I would say that I’m at least willing to persevere. To date, I’ve learned that tomatoes seem to be the most forgiving and that I have no snap pea sense whatsoever.
Then there are these beets and radishes.
Where did they come from?
Well, think of them as more of a science experiment than anything else. It goes something like this:
Random soil that isn’t in use. Use said random soil. Add radish seeds and beet seeds. Water regularly and hope for the best. Fast forward and this is what we get.
I have to say, my daughter and I were quite impressed. We never thought we’d get any radishes or beets from this random series of events but lo and behold, there they were. The radishes were a beautifully vibrant pink while the beets had their signature maroon hue.
Gardening can be pretty fun, especially when you see the results!
