These radishes were a beautiful uniform red color. Their shape was also very round compared to the Easter Egg and Rover cultivars. A few managed to split while in the field.

Overall the flavor was very crisp with a spicy aftertaste. Definitely not for the faint of heart!

Hello Friends! Not just the soil is getting hot out here...

Last week we complained about the weeds, well this week we did something about them. Straw. We covered everything in straw. In class we learned covering the weeds will cease photosynthesis. We did not have clear plastic to roast them out so we are stopping every photon with a barrier.

As for the transplants, they should be planted this week. They are getting stronger everyday.Before we transplant we will have to remove all of that darned hay. Pictures will be posted soon of the transplanting process.

October is here.

Weeds have taken over the plot. The warm weather and watering has created a perfect habitat for these pests. The rows with the radishes have been weeded but the beds waiting for the transplants are another story . The weeds are so high and dense that clear plastic may be the way to go. In class we learned about different plastic mulches, and clear plastic is great for sterilizing the soil. Our lush weeds will soon bake under the clear if we only knew where to get some...
