When I was 5 years old, my father gave me a hand full of radish seeds, which we planted in the backyard. Seeing those seeds sprouting from the ground as little bits of green was one of the most delightful times of my life and it cultivated in me a love of gardening to endure to this day. :)

Great way to enjoy radishes in Spring? Slice radishes and carrots into thin rounds and immerse in rice vinegar. Colourful, tasty, easy, raw and healthy...with a bit of a bite.

We sow radishes on the surface of our compost pile. It is warm and drained enough to plant very early, and the loose soil is best for them. By the time we need that section of the compost bin, the radishes have been harvested and devoured. They make a great "salsa", BTW.
