Fall radishes

Some clearly very organic radishes…the grasshoppers are loving the leaves.

Wow, it has been a warm start to the fall here in the Southwest of France.  Record breaking even.  On Saturday, it hit 32 C, and last week it hit 37 C, which broke the record for October high temperature in the area.

As the summer heat tempered in September, we planted a fall crop including two kinds of radishes, scallions and baby turnips.  A stretch rainy days in mid September, followed by consistently warm days has meant that the radishes have really shot up!  Turnips are not far from ready, but scallions have been slow.  Live and learn.
