It seems like a long time since my coldframe has seen any action but I took a look in there today and found these little fellas – some Radish that I sowed about a week ago. Radish are pretty hardy blighters and are usually one of the first things I sow. They come up quickly in most conditions and as such are perfect for kids to grow.
If you grow them undercover in a coldframe for example, not much harm can come to them. They might get munched on by the odd slug but at this time of year they certainly won’t get infested with flea beetle and I find that my first harvest of Radish is normally nigh on perfect (she says, trying not to tempt fate this year!)
This particular variety are French Breakfast, but I quite fancy having a go at some purple ones like this Purple Plum variety.
Anyone got any recommendations on variety or growing tips?
