Radidshes always remind me of Fraggles! We are Fraggle Rock fans, and the kids loved it when they were younger. They were thrilled to find out that radishes were a real item they could buy in the grocery store, and wanted me to buy some for them to eat. Then they had their first taste and never asked again! Heeheehee!

I once grew a vegetable garden, and the only thing that sprouted was a single radish. I ate it, and wasn't impressed.
