The Marker

Radishes germinate and mature so quickly that we often use them as a marker for other slower germinating crops.

Crops like...

carrots and okra.

You can essentially double crop the Radish and the other slower emerging crops getting two crops in the time of one or even three crops.

To get three crops, garlic is planted in October here in Minnesota. Then in the spring before the garlic emerges you plant carrots between the garlic rows. Then seed over the top with radishes. We just picked our first radishes this way and the carrots will be ready to harvest around the first of July at the same time as the garlic.
