Radish seedlings!

Radishes are the gardener's instant gratification. They germinate faster than even corn and beans, and are ready to harvest in three weeks. Less than one day after planting three rows of radish seeds, we had little seedlings popping up out of the soil.

For seeds from Ebay, the percent that germinated was really high.

Holy cow, right? That's awesome. We plan on making radish chips out of these, by slicing them super thin, sprinkling them with some salt, and baking them.

Because we directly seeded these guys, we had to thin them quite a bit.

We're trying to keep a closed system in our garden, so we're feeding our "scraps" to the rabbits (and soon chickens). In turn, we get meat and manure. You can't beat that.
