Lifecycle of a radish

I think the radish is a perfectly under-appreciated vegetable.  With a breathtaking magenta-like hue and an earthy, crisp crunch - what more could you ask for in a little root vegetable that is ready for harvest in 45 days?  Artist, farmer, and radish activist Matthew Moore made this lovely little timelapse film of the lifecycle of a radish.  Seems like the perfect welcome for the month of April.
