Day 32: The First Harvest from the Box

Tonight at dinner, John and I ate the first radish from The Box! We were so excited. It was very peppery and completely delicious. We planted Burpee Organic Cherry Bell Radishes this year.

The radishes were among the first to germinate. In fact, they showed up on Day 3 along with the marigolds.

So, it took 32 days from sowing the seeds to when we ate the first radish. Next time I plant radishes, I will follow fellow gardeners' recommendation to sow a row each week...that way, they don't all ripen at the same time. (UPDATE: THAT ROW OF RADISHES IS ACTUALLY ARUGULA)

Yay to organic, raised bed gardening in South Florida!!!


  1. Radishes have to be the most encouraging plant in the world... other than perhaps zinnias. Congratulations!

  2. Wow, congrats on your first radish and for such a wonderful raised bed garden here in so. FL.
