My Weekly Cottage Journal: Radish Leaves Pesto


Wood for the Winter

Paul's Scarlett Climber

Hello my friends,
another week is over ,I can not believe how the time flies.
The previous week was not a good week for me,
The pain in my bones and back come back with the humid 
weather. Today I feel me very tired.The last week received
we our wooden for the winter. 
Jayne asked me about the recipe of Radish Leaves Pesto

You need:.

2 large handfulls radish  leaves, stems removed
30 gram (1 ounce) hard cheese, such as pecarino or parmesan grated,
I used parmesan
30 gram nuts. I used almond
1 glove garlic,cut in four
2 tablespoon olive oil,
salt,pepper and ground chilli pepper

Put leaves and garlic in the food processor. Chop.
Drizzle in half oil as it's chopping. Scrape down
the side. Add the cheese.Blend more.
Drizzle in the rest of the oil or until you get the
consistency you like. 
It taste good to noodle.

My thrifty things from last week

I harvested radishes,salad,and rhubarb
I freeze a lot of rhubarb
I harvested my first black currant(200gram) and freeze them
baked two loafes of white bread
knit a few row on my socks and my red cardi
I planted my tomatoes in pots

Blessings until next week,


  1. Liebe Regina,
    auch wenn deine Woche nicht so toll war. Deine Bilder sind wieder einmal richtig schön!
    Ich wünsche dir eine gute Besserung für den Rücken und alles was zwickt.
    Liebe Grüße

  2. Hope this week will be better for you, Regina! This weather certainly affects our joints. Haven't grown radishes in quite a while, but that is a brilliant idea for using the leaves. That looks like a nice load of wood. Never to early to start planning for the cold weather!


  3. I freeze lots of rhubarb too. Our blackcurrants aren't ready yet. Hope you feel better soon.

  4. I hope you're feeling better soon and the weather gets cooler. thanks for sharing the pesto recipe, I've never heard of using radish leaves before :)

  5. Sorry to hear you have been struggling with the pain that comes with humid weather. I can relate to that ~ it happens to me too. The Scarlett Climber is just beautiful! We've been getting wood ready for winter too. :-) I look forward to some cooler days as it is very hot here now.
    Enjoy your day!
    Blessings, ♥

  10. Oh poor Regina, sorry to hear about your aching bones. I hear that turmeric tea is good for inflammation...perhaps it would help you. You have been very busy. Thank you for sharing this recipe, the radishes are growing in my vegetable patch so I will try to make this tomorrow.
    Take care,

  11. Hallo Regina,

  16. That pesto sounds good Regina. Most people just throw the leaves out, yet they can be so useful and healthy.

    You had a great thrifty week at home, and that climber is just beautiful!

    Do you know why your legs are hurting? And have you tried taking magnesium supplement to ease the pain? I started taking magnesium and my achy legs are so much better. Hope the pain eases for you soon.
