We have Germination!

The sun has finally decided to shine the last two days, but we have then had quite cold nights. Both Sunday night and Monday night dipped below freezing, and it is expected to plunge that low for a third night in a row tonight. But the real news for me is I have germinating radish that haven't been pulled up by the birds! These happy little plants are growing safely beneath the protection of the remay tunnel that I installed Sunday afternoon. When I pulled back the remay tonight after work, all 3 varieties have sprouted vigorously. While I know growing radish isn't the hardest thing in the garden, this is a happy turn of events after finding all of my early plants pulled up Sunday morning. In approximately 25-30 days I should be enjoying my first harvest!
