My package says you could use the young greens, so if you want to do that, it would only take a couple weeks to get those.@Too Tall Tomatoes wrote:Since I was late getting my garden box started, I had to rely on plants instead of seeds for some of my crops. I really want to have spinach but so far I haven't been able to find spinach plants. I'm going to two garden centers tomorrow so hopefully they'll have them. If they don't, then possibly I can get them at a flower and plant sale in NJ on Saturday. If I can't get them there, what else could I grow? The original plan was to grow spinach in 6 of the same squares that I have bell peppers in, so I would need something quick-growing and compact if I can't get spinach.
Unofortunately I either have things planted in the squares or I have them set aside to do succession planting. I could possibly add turnips to my list of fall crops. Thanks for the idea!

I did buy some watermelon radishes this year though! Keep in mind that they're Asian radishes, so they're rather bigger than a conventional radish and they take 60 days instead of 30.
The packet of Watermelon Radishes I have says 35 days to harvest.
However I just checked burpee's website and it says there 60 days to harvest. What's up with that??
I bet you could harvest them at 35 days, but they probably wouldn't be fully grown (I'm thinking more conventional radish size). You could always try!
Oh my goodness, turnips! I planted them on a whim in an extra planter I had, and they came up (honest to goodness) in TWO DAYS. I can't believe how fast they germinated! I need to read the seed packet again to see how long it is to harvest them.
