We have rather neglected our little container garden this past week. It was hot, then pouring rain, and we have barely glanced its way. Well, goes to show how much help it needs from us! While we weren't looking, our French breakfast radishes grew to outlandish size! See another photo below, along with links to each major step in their growing process.
Here's a look at our little radishes from beginning to end. Radishes are a very fast crop; they grow seed to radish in just about a month. Try growing a box - it's not too late to sow a few!
Here's the radishes' progress over the last month or so.
