Radish (Mooli)

With the arrival of autumn there are certain bitter greens that thrive in cool temperatures.  Mooli (diakon) is one of the most versatile root vegetables and is used in myriad of ways in the Indian kitchen ranging from a variety of condiments, garnishes, salads, soups and parathas. I have been growing a variety of leafy greens in my garden since the fall of 1978. Every autumn, the mooli that grows in my garden is the last root vegetable to be harvested.

Being an avid gardener, my garden wouldn’t be complete without my favorite radish and mustard greens. Radish leaves are used in the same way as any leafy greens except that I call them bitter greens. The gardening season is over for me now that the autumn is officially here. I wanted to share some of the leafy greens that are growing in my garden since late summer. Below I have displayed two of the pictures with the vegetables that particularly do well in the fall.
