How to grow radishes? Just dig 1.5 cm deep lines in the ground (each 20 cm apart). Scatter the radish seeds by hand and cover with a little soil. Compress soil lightly and water regularly.
When seedlings will begin to grow, thin your plants to keep only the strongest ones every 3-4 cm. Continue to water frequently. If you don’t water enough, radishes tend to get a bit spicy.
To enjoy harvests all summer, don’t forget to sow radish seeds regularly during spring and summer.
Tip: so that the radishes are “clean” when you harvest them, think to water soil a few hours before.
Radishes can not be preserved a long time. If you want to keep a little longer, just plunge their head upside down in a bowl of water.
You can consume your radishes raw or cooked like turnips! Remember to keep the leaves for a delicious pesto or a soup.
And then? After growing radish, avoid planting cabbage. On the other hand, you can plant onions, garlic and turnips !
