    So next year I think I'm going to totally rotate. Leave the beds to recover a year. Thinking of getting some pallet collars, 2 sets of 2 gives me 12" I think. Which should be okay for most of what I grow. Would manure and compost be enough to develop suitable soil profile to grow in?

    Post pictures of your radishes here...

    Good effort but I have a sneaky feeling that too much neglect fertiliser was used on them. A little at the beginning or at the mid bulging stage would give better results.
