Radish Seedlings from Gifted Seeds

I came home last weekend to a much-anticipated package in the mail: the winner's prize from meemsnyc's giveaway on her blog.  It was my very first time entering and winning a blog giveaway, so I felt rather lucky to be selected as the random winner.  Only if I had that kind of luck as a first time vegetable gardener!

My package was sent safe and secure in a bubble envelope and contained these items:

 
 Many different kinds of seeds and a beautiful garden notebook

I was really excited about the assortment of seeds, especially the two different kinds of radishes - Cherry Belle and French Breakfast - that I still had time to plant in my fall garden.  I tucked the radish seeds into empty spaces around my other hardy green fall seedlings.  If all goes well, the radishes will grow and be ready for harvest before the hardy greens are ready, and harvesting the grown radishes will give some breathing room back to the hardy greens as they grow bigger.  How's that for my attempt at intensive gardening!

French Breakfast radish seedlings around Red Russian Kale

After one week, the radishes have already germinated and are already a quarter of the way (I hope) to their harvestable maturity.

Many thanks to meemsnyc for her wonderful generocity!

Sharing seeds with blogger friends is really quite fun! I had several items that I grew in my garden that came from online friends - several of which I intend to grow again.

Congratulations on winning!
I sowed Russian kale you sent me. I hope it will germinate as quickly as your radishes.

Wow, I am so amazed that the radishes are already growing! Glad you got the package in one piece!

Holly - thank you! Hopefully I'll have some new radishes in 3-4 weeks!

kitsapFG - I totally agree with you! As a new gardener/blogger, I'm just getting started with seed sharing, but I'm already having a lot of fun giving and receiving seeds.
