Summer Radishes

Culture: A favorite for children’s gardens because quick and easy to grow with minimal fertility requirements. Summer radishes may be sown almost as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring. They emerge rapidly and grow quickly for a good fresh spring food. Thin to at least 2" for attractive uniform roots. They develop more pungency in hot temperatures and dry conditions than in cool moist weather. Most are ready for harvest at about the size of a half dollar and will rapidly get woody if allowed to grow much larger.

Culinary: Parboil the greens and roots separately, then eat them together as very early spring salad. And the pot liquor, mmmm…
