Grow Bags--one down four to go
Last week I got my grow bags. I ordered a five pack of the fifteen gallon size. It took Just over three standard sized bags of soil to fill. This one I planted with Chinese Shawo Fruit Radish. I got the seed from Baker Creek Seeds. They have just started to come up and I am a little worried the temps will be too high, these are a cool weather crop. The instructions said to plant sixty days before first frost date which is usually Oct 15th. I don't want them to bolt.
I have netting over it to keep the chickens out of it. After the radishes are done I will add it into rotation with the other bags for salad greens through the winter. They will be lined up against the south facing wall of the house and when it starts to get cold I can drape plastic over them and make a cold frameish thing over them. That's the plan anyway.
