I have never grown radishes before but a friend gave me some seeds in a seed swap, so I planted them. I don’t even usually eat radishes, but I’m all for trying new things. All of the plants in the garden are doing well but I was surprised how quickly the radishes grew. Especially when compared to basil! All of my friends know that I became obsessed with growing basil this year. It turns out that basil grows slowly. I mean REALLY slowly. I ended up buying some plants at the nursery so that we would have some to use until my baby seedlings got big enough.
