Radish - Daikon Radish


Notes: Daikon is derived from two Japanese words dai (meaning large) and long-term (meaning root). Roots are much larger than traditional radish and will range from 2 to 4 inches in diameter and 6 to 20 (that's right 20 inches)long. They develop in 3 different shapes. Cylindrical, Spherical, Oblong. Also known as icicle radish, white radish and mooli, in Britain. It is a companion plant to Chervil, cress, lettuce, leeks, tomatoes, spinach and even strawberries.


Instructions: Direct Sow 2 to 4 cm deep. Be sure area selected is a deep bed or planting area and keep soil evenly moist for smooth and even growth. Careful when digging out. Plants may be brittle. The roots can be clean and stored for several weeks if lifted, leaves are removed and kept in a dry, dark and cool location. Moisture free is the key to long-term storage with many root vegetables.


History: This ancient root vegetable is believed to have originated in the Mediterranean. About 500 B.C it was brought to China & Japan to begin further cultivation.


Medicinal: Daikon radish is popular in Asian dishes. Its low in calories, high in vitamin C. Adding rice bran or cooking in rice water will keep the radishes fresh flavour and clean white colour.

Brussels Sprouts -  Favoured for its compact size and tightly spaced leaves and sprouts. Harvest after a frost for the sweetest flavour. Best cooked in a pot with the lid off. Sweet and tasty! In warmer climates, if left to grow the second year, they produce an explosion of beautiful yellow flowers in early Spring. This will encourage the early pollinators in your garden to stay all season so we recommend leaving a few stalks in the ground to see this stunning display. The flowers then turn to seed pods, that looks like a cluster of tiny bean pods. Let just a few dry on the plant and harvest when   pod is browned off. Just a few pods will be sufficient to restock your seed collection for free. If you do collect for seed it is important that only 1 type of brassica is in bloom at the same time. This is especially true for small garden spaces.   Beet - Detroit Red - Delicious green foliage on an edible root. The foliage is an excellent source of iron. Great for container plantings. Roots are delicious fresh or cooked. Stores very well!
The Detroit Red Beet is a blood-red globe-shaped root vegetable. It is cold hardy, and seeds can germinate and grow in soil temperatures as low as 5 degrees Celsius. In milder climates, seed can be sown September for February harvest. Beets prefer deep, well-drained soil and need to be kept moist for best results.   Onion - Walla Walla - Renowned for its sweetness, size and longevity of storage.
Produces large white onion bulbs with brown skins. Great for soups, stews and stirfry.
