I loved Fraggle Rock…for some reason we were forbidden from watching it growing up. I have no idea why. The theme tune was catchy. It had ecological messages and all centred around a very healthy mis-understood vegetable – the radish. I definitely snuck in the odd episode here and there. Red, Goober and Wembley were crazy creations of Jim Henson who could share dreams and eat their weight in radishes.
The most bizarre of all the creatures of Fraggle Rock, were definitely the Doozers, sort of pea creatures, made these amazing elaborate constructions all from radishes. The Fraggles couldn’t get enough of these, and the doozers couldn’t stop building them. A natural bonkers ecosystem of radish equilibrium. Thank goodness they don’t take long to grow!!
My husband just recently made me watch an episode I had never seen before…Marjory the Rubbish Tip, with her two ratty buddies. Check out you tube with her singing the blues! Ahhh its that type of peppy madness that makes me love the 80s.
Radish and Heirloom tomato salad
Radishes – thiny slicedBaby tomatoes or heirloom tomatoes
2 tsps wholegrain mustard
1 tsp of honey
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

These radishes are lovely and peppery so the honey mustard dressing is perfect with them. simply mix the dressing mixture and spread over the radishes and tomatoes.
