I picked some radishes today in the rain.  I picked some last week too to thin the plants and make space, but those radishes were only about half this size.

You can see that the seed leaves (the heart-shaped leaves close to the root) are still green and healthy.  On some plants, these will wither as the plant grows.

I planted these radishes 5 weeks ago.  I planted a short row every week, so we should be able to harvest radishes for a month.  Last week, I planted cabbages and kale in between the rows of radishes.  Those plants will take over the space as the radishes are removed.
