Fall Garden Update #2

radish-1 According to the seed packet, I should be harvesting radishes today. But that’s not going to happen. My concerns about the raised bed not getting enough sun, were warranted. I cleaned out a vine that was crawling up a small black walnut tree, and then I tied the tree back with some rope. This will hopefully allow more sun to come through.

radish-2The radishes were also battered by rain from severe thunderstorms, further pushing down the dirt, leaving the radish root exposed. The result is stringy radishes with big leafy tops.

Lesson learned.
