Gardening Tip of the Day

  • It only takes 3 to 4 weeks to grow radishes and mesclun. Radishes and Mesclun are an easy way to grow and create a tangy mix for a first-of-spring salad.

    Prepare a planting bed as early as the soil can be worked, then carefully sprinkle the seeds over the bed spacing the seeds generously to minimize the need to extensively thin the plants.

    Rake the seeds in lightly and keep the bed well watered.

    Thin radishes to an inch apart within a few days after they germinate. Otherwise they tend to produce lots of leaf tissue, but the roots don't develop.

    Thin mesclun by cutting plants with scissors so as not to disturb the roots of nearby plants. In just a few weeks you will be cutting gourmet salad mixes.
