Apparently Radishes Need Sun

Post  Chopper on 7/7/2010, 9:23 pm

I planted some radishes among the corn, beans and zucchini in my three sisters box, hearing that they detered SVBoreres. I don't care for them so forgot about them and now the corn and beans are taller than me and the zucchini has leaves as big as my head.

Then I saw some weird leaf trying to reach above everything else. Yikes, It was a radish! Who knew they were even capable. This one is for Josh:






Also, the pole beans apparently want to touch to sun and I have nothing else for them, they are on their own:

Chopper, those pics are AMAZING !!! I think your pole beans are the original "Jack and the Bean Stalk" variety

I planted radishes that got leggy, which means I probably won't get bulbs, so I did some research. They want sun and potassium. Since nothing can survive our summer sun, and my soil is probably more nitrogen than potassium, I now have a new experiment. I'll wait until after our first woodstove fire, collect the ashes, mix with soil and then plant my radishes. By then our direct sun shouldn't fry them and they should like the soil mixture. Stay tuned for further developments. geek
