Home grown radishes – so good for your liver!

I am so pleased with the radishes this year – they were so so easy to grow. All I did was make holes with a stick and drop the seeds in, in fact I may not even have needed to make the holes as the ones that accidentally escaped from my fingers and just dropped have grown as well as any of the others. I sewed two packs of organic radish this year and we will have loads, even in such a small space. It is really worth you trying this and radishes are a brilliantly healthy addition to anyone’s diet.
