The past couple of years the radishes I have planted have all gone to tops--no rasihes. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

Radishes grow best when sown when temperatures are cool; very early spring or fall crops develop fully. When growing in the summer, all the energy is directed into top growth. Sow radish seeds in early spring and again in late summer and you'll have two harvests each years and you'll actually have vegetables instead of just tops. Hope you have better results with your radishes!
