Good enough to eat
Radishes THESE fiery, colourful additions to summer salads are among the easiest veg to grow and mature very quickly, but for a prolonged supply use Mixed Radish seed, which includes varieties that mature at different rates.
Sow them as catch crops or in any odd patch, digging compost into the soil and raking to a fine tilth before sowing thinly in trenches about 1cm deep. You shouldn’t need to thin summer varieties unless they are very overcrowded.
Quick and uninterrupted growth is essential for good results, so hoe between emerging plants and water when the weather is dry.
Harvest summer varieties when they are about 2.5cm across because if you leave them too long they’ll become woody.
