radish sproutlings are here!!!

i've never had my own garden. so this year, a couple of weeks ago and a day, i decided on a whim to plant radishes when i went to home depot to get a washer. they sounded pretty hardy according to the package, and i do love to eat radishes! so i took my new garden tools and after turning over the dirt in the garden all the way around the yard, i planted my packet of radish seeds. kind of like the directions said. only i didn't have a big space for the experiment so i dumped all of the seeds in 2 rows! it's rained a few times since then. i have no idea if they'll come up or if i have the right conditions or not, but today (It had rained this am too) i decided to do radish watch (say that 10x fast in a row!) and saw a green speck in the soil. upon closer inspection, i realized it did not appear to be a weed! so i moved a little dirt lightly with my hand and saw a WHOLE LOT of little seedlings sprouting through!!! i guess i can liken the feeling (sorta) to parents seeing a sonogram for the 1st time! lol...can't have a guy, can't have a dog, might as well have radishes....

Yum! You're lucky - I'd love to have radishes in our garden...unfortunately, so would the rabbits and deer around here. Maybe a cat would suit your weird hours?

Mary, Mary, quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row
