My back yard lacks a bit of sunshine so things don't grow as fast, but they do grow.
I've recently planted radishes for the first time and they have already started pushing out of the ground, however they are not very large, maybe half the diameter of shop bought radishes.
The leaves are still growing healthily, but the tops of the radishes are getting nibbled at by something so I need to make a decision.
- Pull them up and eat them at the size they are?
- Cover them with a bit more dirt and give them some time to grow larger?
- Cover them with mulch to stop them being eaten?
I'm an impatient gardener and worry that they will get spoiled by being eaten by whatever has been taste testing them if I leave them the way they are, or they will rot if I leave them in the ground too long.
