Whitney Farms Organic Vegetable and Plant Food

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whitney Farms for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Less than a month ago, this is what my yard looked like.

I've been so eager to start planting, and the temperature has finally been above freezing at night for more than a few days in a row. So while the yard still needs a lot of work, My family started planting in our containers, fed our established plants, the raspberries, rhubarb and strawberries. We also started our radishes.
For all of them we used Whitney Farms® organic products.

Their organic plant food , as you see in the photo, is dry pellets that are very easy to mix into the soil. They also have an organic soil. Organic fertilizers and soil are very important to me. These are the berries we will turn into jam, the rhubarb my daughter uses in her lemonade and for pie fillings and the herbs and edible flowers that get used for cooking through out the year.  Whitney Farms has been around for years and I trust their products. We have a short growing season, so starting early is important.
There was no dust that I noticed and the reclosable bags and dry pellets make it very convenient and neat to use. It didn't smell made.
It was a lot of fun working with my husband and children out in the yard today.

We are planning to make furikake using the radish greens, pickling the radishes, and making lots of jam with the berries. I also want to take some of the runners off of the strawberries to give to friends as gifts.
Using radish greens for furikake is a great way to add vegetables to every day food.
My son's favorite Radish Leaves Furikake
Rinse and chop leaves fine.
For each cup of radish greens add:
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tsp. mirin or rice vinegar
1 tsp. red pepper flakes- less if you prefer less heat
1 tsp. brown sugar
Heat up a skillet and stir the ingredients in the skillet. Stirring constantly, cook over a medium heat until the liquid has evaporated and the leaves are dry.
If you live in Alaska, flaked smoked salmon makes a wonderful addition. Put into a jar and keep in the fridge, it keeps for a week. The taste of commercial furikake  that's available in the U.S. is frequently over salted. This is the one my kids like. I'm pretty sure they eat the radishes so there is a good reason to have the greens.  Furikake is used as a seasoning for rice, noodles and other things.
