Thinnin’ a hard lesson to learn

I was really excited to walk out one morning and see that by shoots were still well, shooting up!!! However my excitment was short lived,during a conversation with Marie she brought to my attention the very thing that I had not wanted to hear.

Not such a happy me

Not such a happy me

“Oh, now you have to thin them”.

“What, but do I have to?”

“Indeed you do if you want a good crop”.

Since Marie is my gardening guru I did as I was told and set about thinning the shoots.

Selecting the smaller shoots and plucking them from their home

Marie instructed that I do this myself so that I would learn the lesson the hard way. She was there for moral support.

Radish carnage, these won’t go to watse

Thinnin'

Ahhhh, breathing space

Thinnin'

The thinned radish spouts were a delicious accompaniment to that nights dinner

And, a week later

Thinnin'

The radishes are really flourishing and loving all that space!!
