Thinning Radish Seedlings

After sprouting and growing in your vegetable garden for a few weeks, more than likely you’ll find there will be too high a density of radishes in the row that you planted. This is the time to thin them out a bit.

Give your radish plants about 1-2 inches of space in between each other so that their roots (the part you will want to eat) have the opportunity to grow larger and not be crowded by the ones next to them. You’ll want to pull out about every other plant.

There won’t be any waste, because the entire radish seedling you just pulled out is completely edible. Wash them and toss them into tonight’s dinner salad. Wait a few more weeks and you will have plenty of nice, large radishes. Watch the video for tips and techniques on thinning radishes.
