Radished

radishes

Did you enjoy the hot weather ? I hope you did, I enjoyed it too as long as I did not look in my radish tunnel. The high day time and low night time temperatures played havoc with the tender radish leaves and made them mature far too fast.

This has never happened before to this degree and we have had to throw out a whole week's production. It would have been ok if we did not bunch the radishes but sold them in a plastic bag as we did the last few years, but plastic is a no no nowadays. For good reason but it makes marketing fresh produce so much more difficult. The radish itself is very nice to eat but bunched it is a sorry sight. Humm.
