Gardening: First To Bed? Radishes!

Trench and Radishes Ready for Bed “C”

Operation Green Thumb advanced to our first seeds sewn. One row to Cherry Belle Radishes planted in what we have labeled as Bed “C”.

Radishes are a cold weather veggie that will grow to maturity in as little as 21 days. They tend to be a reliable germinating plant too. We should pretty much have one radish for every seed sewn.

With this information in mind, we will stagger rows of radishes to be harvested roughly every other week. This week we plant one row, in 7 to 10 days and additional row will be planted. 14 to 17 days later we harvest the first row and replace with more radish seeds.

With luck we will be able to harvest radishes at least 3 times from late May to late June. If this works, we can easily buy more seed and continue the process until late fall.

Correction on the video. I mentioned that most items will be planted after the first frost…nope after the LAST frost will be helpful. These first take, only take videos are tricky!
