The easiest thing to grow in your garden.
Radishes are probably the easiest thing you could ever grow in your garden. Some breeds grow from seed to harvest in as little as twenty-five days. It usually takes about a week for the seeds to sprout. After that most types are ripe after about a month. Radishes are a cool weather crop that is best to plant in the spring or fall. The heat will make the plant "bolt", meaning it will go to seed before it matures. Saving seeds from ones that bulb up good but don't go to seed in a heatwave, is a good way to breed for heat tolerence. The seeds are cheap readily available just about anywhere with a gardening section. Since the radishes mature at such a fast rate they are great to grow with slower growing plants. In this picture I cleared out a section of neglected garden. I planted some red potatoes in with the radishes. The potatoes will take quite a while to sprout up and mature. So the quick growing radishes will be ready way before the potatoe crop. Plant lots of seeds every few days until it gets too hot. If you plant continuously you won't be overwhelmed by to much all at once. Instead you'll have a steady supply to munch on till summer. This area where my swiss chard is growing would be a good place to squeeze some more radishes and lettuce plants in. For a novice gardener, or even a child gardener, radishes are the best instant gratification you can recieve in the plant kingdom. Anything I can eat in thirty days of growing is pretty special in my book. Hope you enjoyed my radish growing enthusiasm. Please #upvote #follow and #resteem if you found this useful.
