Radishes and lettuces

Raddishes and LettucesRadishes are one of our fast growing spring crops. The first December sowing is usually ready late March and we now grow about 100 bunches a week for two months only. Radishes are followed in this tunnel by little gem lettuces on the right. Radishes are actually not all that easy to grow, carefull watering is very important to prevent slug damage, splitting and roots getting hollow. For these early crops we choose a short top radish which does not grow enormous leaves. A neat green top makes a radish more presentable.
