One of the main reasons I keep this blog is for my own garden record keeping. Being able to include pictures is a huge additional bonus. I had recently read that radishes will go pithy when exposed to hard frosts, so this morning I picked all of the remaining mature radishes. Scanning back through September blogs, I see that I planted the seed on September 12th. There, actual proof of the value of the blog. The planting worked out perfectly, as I have harvested the best radishes I have ever grown. They certainly do well growing into the cool weather as they mature, rather than growing into hot weather with a spring crop. Three plantings a week apart starting on September 1st would probably be perfect.
The end of the radish crop, 12/17/11

I will really appreciate this end of the crop, knowing that a spring crop is months away. But to have radishes well into December has been great.
