Radishes (updated 07/25)

So, I'm growing all sorts of stuff in my office, including radishes. Like the NBA playoff schedule, I'll try to update this blog entry often with pictures of the radishes. The current day's photo will be the one shown on the blog. The older photos will be linked. You will also find a link to this blog entry in the left hand menu entitled "What's Growing in Nonny Nu's Office?"

07/25 Update: Okay, this is going to be the last entry. I harvested these on 7/25, but forgot to post the results. Obviously, they were not stellar. I ate the leaves and they were not bad, though.





July 6: I'm really tempted to dig these up and see what's underneath all that dirt. Any radishes? Or, just roots?? It's been, um, let's see...over 2 months. *SOMETHING* should have grown, don't you think?
June 28: A few of the stronger once revived, but the rest are a goner. I'll harvest those on monday.
June 18, June 25: I effed up, folks. I replaced the forks with stirers, but I forgot to water the radishes before I left on my birthday vacation last Friday. Add to that the fact that I was in San Diego last Thursday, that's four full days that the radishes were just baking there in te sun. When I got back, this happened. I'm thinking about harvesting early just to see how much of it grew, and starting a new batch. Should I?
June 1: Several people asked me what the fork is for. It's to get the raddishes used to their fate, of course--DUH!
May 21: I repotted these last Friday and also added a few more seeds. Look at these things grow!
May 15: Do these look stunted?
May 10
May 9: Soon, there will be radishes for the office.
May 7
May 6: Check out the new growth.

Is there a green thumb contest going on between and your office neighbor? I wonder if there is any weed in the wildflower seed mix?

True, I may be a recent NorCal resident, but I thought that weed was a desired and generally embraced wildflower in the NorCal area.

I just hope there are no raids on Ms. Nu's office.

I meant dandelions, (wink), but thanks for the information.

Cl. Panic, you'll get your cut if you stay quiet.

Man From U.N.C.L.E., there IS an unspoken contest between me and Green Thumbs McGillicutty. Don't tell her, though, because I'm not sure she is aware of it. It's my bid to become the most popular person in the office, which is where the "wild flowers" come in...

Is that why I saw you in a certain-co-worker-who-is-on-vacation's office with a bottle of Roundup?

It's not my fault she grows weeds.

Dig up the damn radishes!
