They are meant to be the easiest thing to grow from seed, so why can’t I grow radishes? They just won’t work.
The first thing I grew was radishes
When I was a kid, around 7 years old I wanted to grow something in the garden. My mum said I should grow radishes because they were the easiest thing to grow.
You know how it is, anyone can grow radishes, apparently.
They did grow and I remember picking the first one, then taking a bite. I spat it out, it was horrible. Why did I grow them?
Well as a kid I thought they were horrible. Now I love them in salads because they add a great bit of crunch.
My veggies garden
So radishes had to go in my garden. They were the first thing I planted when I got my new raised beds.
When a couple started coming up I was so excited. It is always good to see things breaking through the surface. One, two came through and I waited and waited. One more has come through since then, but I know I planted more than 3 radishes.
So what is happening?
Trying to figure it out why I can’t grow radishes
I tried growing them from the same packet of seeds last year and the results weren’t great. Back then I thought it was my garden, but I’m starting to think it is the seeds.
How could it possibly be that I can’t grow them? Anyone can grow radishes, right?
I can’t give up, so I am going with the idea that the seeds are dodgy and I have got new ones. Different company, so we will see if these ones will work.
I will be devastated if I can’t grow them. Surely if I can’t grow them, how could I possibly grow anything else?
Stay tuned and I will plant the new seeds tomorrow.
