Waiting for Daikon Radish
According to the seed packet, this Daikon Radish is supposed to be a fast grower and be ready to harvest in 45 days. Well, my radishes obviously didn't get that memo. It's been over 75 days since I planted the seeds and I'm just now starting to see signs of some root growth. They don't look very big to me, though, compared to how I had envisioned them. Maybe they don't like the heavy clay soil in this small in-ground garden, even though I tried to amend it as much as possible by adding some "good" dirt.
Daikon radishes are going be one of my last harvests from the Indiana garden this year, so I'm trying to be patient.
Ack, I'm so not good at being patient for garden harvests!
