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.
“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
Ahhhh, breathing space
The thinned radish spouts were a delicious accompaniment to that nights dinner
And, a week later
The radishes are really flourishing and loving all that space!!
