Radishes are planted in our garden for their flavor in several summer dishes, as well as companion plants.
Plant radishes to deter cucumber beetles, cabbage worms, squash borers, squash bugs, slugs, flies and other pests. With this in mind, radishes should be planted with cucumber, cabbage, beets, squash, melons, beans, peas and spinach. Some suggest carrots as well, while others do not recommend this pairing.
Use radishes in the following recipes:Farmer's Cheese Spread or Pasta Twarogowa
There are many other recipes you can use radishes in, or you can enjoy them simply by slicing them thin and layering on good bread with butter and a pinch of salt like all the Slavs love to enjoy.
