I was thinking of planting rose radishes in my
failed potato onion bed.
Problem: I have to beet the earwigs to a plant
large enough to survive them. Needs to be about
four inches tall for them to leave along. (My
earwigs will dig a hole down to eat a sprout
that has not make it to the surface.) The
earwigs some out about the start of June.
So, the weather dips to 31F one out of four days
a week. Is it too soon to plant rose radishes?
i'm not familiar with radish varieties other
than daikon and some long ones that grow more
like a carrot than a round ball radish that you
would usually see in the store.
i use these for poking roots down through the
deer eat them if i don't.
radishes are indicated as somewhat cold
tolerant, but because they can grow so quickly
and easily i'd not worry too much. just plant
them in staggered plantings about a week apart
and thin as needed.
i much prefer radish sprouts over the radishes
