The radishes started coming in last week, they were planted in early March. The radishes love this cool weather and even though they offer some bite, it's tempered by early spring temperatures.
I almost always plant radish seeds along with carrots. I'll be harvesting the radishes for the next couple weeks. As I do, it leaves room for the carrots to fill in.
But there's always some radishes that don't head up. Those can be left in the garden to flower and produce seed pods. The pods taste just like a mild radish.
There's still time though to plant more radishes and carrots. I like to put down a three to four inch layer of compost then scatter a pack of each on the bed.
The seeds are raked in to the compost and then patted down to assure good contact with the soil. The bed is watered, and never left to dry out until the radishes sprout. the carrots will germinate later.
Radishes are happier in the spring, but can grow all summer too. Hot weather makes them spicy and often stops the root from reaching fruition.
Quick maturing crops like radishes, lettuce and other greens can be planted many times during the season.
Here's a video that show the radish seeding-
