Never thought of growing radishes. I love them too.
Do they require much care?

Nice crop, Dave, though I think he might have picked those a bit late. Annie and I planted radishes each growing season for years; just another thing I miss now.

Mark, not really. Just plat the seeds and wait. They grow quickly and usually do well. That large one was juicy all the way through. His girlfriend made pickled radishes for me this week. I'd never had them before. Pretty neat.

Thanks Dave!
I think I'll try growing some when the time is right. I did read that they like a bit cooler weather than the heat of summer.

I love them raw with a bit of salt. My wife actually sliced and sauteed some once. They were good that way too! ☺

They grow anytime. They will grow in cooler weather when other things won't. I love them with a bit of garlic salt. They are just good plain too. Plant some now and see what happens. You can't go wrong.

They were always in our late spring garden along with a row or two of sugar snap peas and lettuce. For best results, they should be thinned as soon as they start to leaf out. We loved our radishes!
