Go for it! I grew Miyashige daikon last year. They survived the first freeze fine... and so did some of the cabbage butterfly caterpillars! I harvested a pair of daikons right at the beginning of January, so I *think* that means they were good down to 10*F. My journal says there was a 5*F low while I was out of town, and the radishes were dead when I got back. From what I recall from the looks of the plants I think they could have lasted even longer if they'd had wind protection. So maybe consider mulching them once they have several leaves? I think the growth will be slower while it's cold, so it may take longer than 45 days depending on what weather you have during those days.
Interesting!  I think I will!

Some of us got some rain today.  We did, and I think we need it from a total precipitation standpoint, but harvest-timing wise, puts the beans a little behind.  

On the SFG front, I see that my summer stuff is feeling the light lessening....melons quit. Beans quit.  Maters toughing out what they have on, I need to trim all flowering branches to force the energy into  finishing the baby maters.  Pepper going well!

I need to spend some time in the compost heap this weekend.  Chop and turn, use the stuff into the boxes that is ready, layer some stuff with straw to get a start for next year!  

Fall is upon us!

some of my older beet seedlings may actually turn into something...some newer beet seedlings (maybe 5 weeks old or so) germinated really well but are not putting on any growth.

great germination with carrots but no growth for weeks.

buttercrunch lettuces doing really well...may have to break out the Agribon frost protection before all is said and done.

Need to shop for spinach seeds and garlic to plant in mid-October.

You will still start spinach now, landarch?

I may start a flat of 72 in the basement under the grow lights...after using the CitizenKate method to germinate in the fridge.

I agree.  My freestyle germination efforts have not been productive.  They like the heating pad and lights.....
