Harvesting Home Grown Daikon (White Radish) For Soup

There was a heavy downpour last evening. Even before the rain came, we could hear the sound of howling wind and approaching rain. It sounded scary but when the rain came, it was not as bad as expected. This morning, the ground was still wet and I need not have to water my plants.

Sunrise at 7:40am.
Sunrise with dark cloud at 7:45am.

This small piece of land belongs to my neighbour. Instead of leaving it overgrown with weeds, they allow me to use it as a vegetable patch. It is just outside our house. With this small piece of land, I can grow 3 to 4 types of vegetables.
I have daikon or white radish growing here.
2 days ago, I harvested the above for boiling soup.
I used all the above to boil soup for 4 people, including the 2 young ladies (neighbour).
Ingredients for soup: daikons, red carrots, red dates, gojiberries and soft bones. Hubby and I didn't want any rice or noodle, just a big bowl of soup with the ingredients for dinner. I forgot to take snapshots of the soup.
Currently, hubby is busy with his new projects and one of them is growing Japanese roses.
Finally, my friend came to collect this avocado seedling.
It has been adopted.
Hope it will grow healthy and bear fruits.

And we believers also groan, even though
we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory,
for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering.
We, too, wait with eager hope for the day
when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children,
including the new bodies he has promised us.
(Romans 8:23, New Living Translation-NLT)

    1. Thank you, PH. I don't eat kimchi so the daikon will be for soup and stewing with meat.

  8. My late father would not eat that, said it would cleanse away all the medication that one took. I suppose it detoxifies, that is why! The ladies in the house love it! Very popular vegetable among the Koreans!

  13. My avocado must be about 6 years old now. I dare not plant it out and it is so root bound, it looks happy though. Too cold for it here so it lives in the green house in winter. Cheers Diane
