First Radish Harvest 2013

Friday, 7 June 2013 11:50:25 Europe/London

Our radishes growing in the Saladgrow salad planters are ready to be harvested, you will know they are ready when the radish reaches roughly golf ball size and has turned bright red. 

To harvest the radish we used a hand fork to gently loosen the roots from the soil and then gently pulled the radish along with its tap root from the planter. These will keep for roughly a week and taste great on a salad.

Now that we have harvested this crop we can get a second lot sown in our planter and have yet more radishes in just 5-6 weeks. The seeds are sown in rows around 2.5 centimetres apart and should germinate quickly showing new shoots in around a week.
