Not so easy, radishes

Slug damage on French Breakfast Radish.

Slug damage on French Breakfast Radish.

You would think that a place that gets consistent rainfall would be an ideal place to cultivate succulent radishes. Simple radishes; grow quickly in cool weather, the first veggie we gave our kids to grow because they have large seeds. I love the crunch and flavor! But so do slugs.
The downside to using my hoop house with Remay fabric to keep out the insects is that I do not open it up often to weed and check on things. Today was the day and most things looked ok, except for radishes.

  1. I am so glad to see someone blame this damage on the critter that actually *caused* it. Bunnies get blamed for a lot of garden mischief they didn’t have anything to do with! Cheers!
