It's been warm. It's been wet. Basically, it's perfect growing weather.
When it gets to June I always have to remind myself to keep on sowing. I find myself drawn into a lull, a false sense of security, a feeling that everything is in and so I'm done. But that's FAR from the truth. Because to get all those yummy vegetables throughout the season, successional sowing is essential.
I'm still being held back by my cabbages. They've taken over an entire bed and they're still not ready for harvesting. It seemed a good idea at the time, a good way to utilise some winter raised bed space, but I'm in desperate need of that growing space back. I have, however, pulled all the pak choi out and fed it to the chickens. And that means I can get on with sowing more radishes!
Now, I've read and been told that radishes are a quick crop, germinating and growing to maturity within 30 days. Not so with mine! The month mark is tomorrow and as you can see from the above picture, there is still some way to go. However, they did take a while to germinate so I'm giving them a little leeway.
So, it's another drill of each variety and, in this warm weather, lets hope more crops soon start appearing!
