I think radish seedlings are offered in micro-green mixes...I know I've seen them listed in Johnny's Seed micro-green pages.

One of my favorite micro-greens is daikon radish.

I've also been reading about radishes making for a good cover crop...especially long daikon varieties that can help aerate heavy soils up to 24" or so...I think this is called bio-rilling.  Radishes can also deter root nematodes...and radish litter can be a good source of nitrogen for the spring garden.

They are planted around here late fall.  In the late winter, when it thaws and you get a whiff of the dying/dead decomposing radishes, it smells like roadkill!  This is acres and acres I am talking about!

Last fall I planted Daikon Radishes in a small part of my garden that is not 100% MM.  I was trying to get the radishes to burrow down into the clay below the bed. Unfortunately, I either planted it too late in the fall or my clay under the bed was just to hard to penetrate because the radishes did not go down into the clay.

In our area, it is planted to break up the clay hard pan soil and amend.  Actual farmland....

Blacktail Mountain melon update, harvested my one and only melon from 2 plants.....hmmm.  It was dense, bowling ball sized.  Very sweet but very seedy.  Very.  Seedy.  I will try one more time but IDK.   



Lots of seeds.  Anybody want seeds?!  PM me!
