First Vegetables out of the Garden

The radishes are peeking above the soil!  Such pretty colors in the summer sun.  The bugs are beginning to notice the broccoli so we pulled the biggest out of the bunch to have for dinner before the insects beat us to it.  I count this as a grand success since we had brussell sprouts that tried to flourish but the bugs just kept at them.  A leaf would unfurl and promptly get nibbled back.  This guy is far from grocery store sized but we ate it anyway!  We chopped up the radish leaves and broccoli stem leaves and mixed it in with salad.  There are good sources of minerals in those leaves!
