STEP-BY-STEP SLIDESHOW TUTORIAL:

I wanted to give my radishes some protection earlier this spring because the birds were shredding the tiny seedlings and nibbling them off at ground level, so I decided to build a small cloche over them with reemay all purpose garden fabric crop covers (buy through links at bottom of post) and some support and wire mesh at the ends.   If it were colder out and you wanted more warmth you could just hang the reemay fabric over the ends of the cloche as well and forget about the wire mesh.

The design is simple: I just cut a peice of reemay fabric to the appropriate size and used some "tomato ladders" (heavy duty vertical crop supports, availible through the link at bottom of this post) layed sideways accross the bed to hold it up. The front edge of the fabric is tucked under the support and the back side is held down with a few bricks. Coated wire mesh is used on the ends (if root maggot is a problem for you then just wrap the reemay around and under the ends as well to prevent the flies laying eggs).  Using bricks to hold down the sides makes it easy to access the planting area when necessary. You can also use "earth staples" which are very effective and availible through the links at the bottom of this post.

When the radish roots are starting to plump up it's the time to sow another couple of rows from seed to ensure a continued harvest after this batch is gone.  When ready, I like to pick the largest ones out of the row evenly to allow the others to plump up with the added elbow room. Don't forget to sow more seeds elsewhere in the garden to keep the harvest going!

  1. Thank you so much.. I learn so much from you and I am so very grateful... Not only do you give great advice, but also detailed directions and links on where to buy what I need.. being a disabled want-to-be gardener, all this is important to me as I very often am unable to get out to buy what I need.. again, thank you so very much. ~Suzy in Colorado~
