I have heard that radishes are the easiest vegetable to grow. How do I start?
Radishes are indeed easy to grow, and if you’ve never gardened before, growing radishes is a great place to start. You probably could have started your first crop of radishes a couple weeks ago, but one of the unique things about radishes is that they grow so quickly that you can continue to plant them throughout much of the growing season. In your area, you should be able to start radishes at any point over about the next three weeks, and keep sowing every 10 days or so. And you’ll be able to sow even more radishes later on in the fall, too. Here’s what you need to know to get started: All About Growing Radishes. Good luck!
