    Pulled a radish this afternoon first 1 !
    Are they ready to come out, red above the soil but not a great amount of leafage. Should I let them grow more I have about 10 in can see the red on 3 or 4.
    (They are growing under a fusia bush so many a red flower in the pic too)

        Those two look ready to me. Just check daily and pull those that look big enough. Don't pull the whole lot in one go without checking.

          You can let them grow a bit bigger if you water them well, they like water, and more water !

          Almost looks as if you have spaced them very wide apart ? we usually just sow a drill and they happily come up together, as you take some out to eat the others get more room to grow.
