I planted Daikon (sp) japanese radishes for the first time this year to see what they are like. The leaves got huge like you might expect for something that is supposed to form a long root. Now it wants to go to seed, I keep taking it off them. We haven't had all that much hot weather, so it isn't bolting I don't think. Is this normal or are they going to stop growing? Any advice for what to do
They are in a carrot box and the carrots are doing just fine in a similar box with the same soil. They are forming roots that are thick but not too long yet. I pulled one up last week, but left the others. They have been watered regularly. The weather has been mild in the NW this year, but I have turnips going to seed as well. What is weird about the turnips is that 6' of the row are turning into right fine turnips, the other 6' many are going to flower without any turnip. Go figure.
