I had big plans

To catch up on some blog posts.  But like all best laid plans, I have hit a snag.  We went on holiday and I can no longer find my camera.  So posts but not pictures.

We have put the compost through the vege garden, and staked out the rows.  Today P and J helped me to sow our first two rows of seeds.

Our garden is laid out with alternating short and long term crops in it.
A = full season plants (like cucumber and courgette)
B = half season plants (like brassicas and peas)
C =short term crops (carrots, beetroot, spring onions).

The rows are 50cm apart, and every year we move the rows by 25cm to ensure that we are getting a reasonable crop rotation.  This year the rows run B C A C B C A C and today we planted some snow peas in the first row, and carrots and radishes in the second.

J was really keen to grow some radishes, so we sowed them, but I don't really eat them so I am at a bit of a loss with what to do with them when they come through.

What are you planting out? And any tips on the radishes?
