Radishes first crop of the season.

I always enjoy planting radishes. They take up little space and usually only require 22 days from planting the seeds until harvest! For those of us who are short on patience this is a rewarding plant to grow!

This year I planted Cherry Belle radishes and French Breakfast radishes. Over the weekend I got to pick the first planting of them.
The photo is of my Cherry Belle radishes. They can be planted in stone free soil in early spring to early summer and again in late summer for a fall crop. The Cherry Belle are very bright red and add excellent color to any garden salad.
