On or about Day 25, we pulled out about 7 teeny, tiny radishes, one with a cabbage root maggot partway inside. D. decided that we had to wait a bit more and gave all the plants some compost tea he had been brewing for a couple of days.
We’ve pulled out around 35 these past couple of days (at days 27 & 28), all still quite small, but tasty enough and fairly well-formed. Thankfully, we found no other wiggly critters. A rogue radish that had started growing in between the central plot and east plot proved to be one of the larger ones we pulled, much to our delight and surprise.
The roots taste mild and crunchy, and we’ve also been using the spicy greens (sans stems) in our veggie stir-fries.
