Here are a few photos of radishes ready to eat.  The next photo is a broccoli plant that grew great big leaves for months and now finally producing the broccoli head.  And finally, I have a cardinal that watches over the garden.

The cabbage plants are growing strong thus far.  Its grand design is to grow great, big leaves before formation of the cabbage head.  At that point, it feeds and protects the cabbage head through its maturation process.  The broccoli plants are doing well, but interestingly seem to take longer to produce its head.  Same with the cauliflower.  Radishes always grow well in the fall and winter months, so you'll see them scattered about PG gardens.  I decided to experiment with two tomato plants just to see how they'd produce in the colder months, and it's certainly a slower process.

Here we have an aerial view of my fall garden.  From left to right is: cabbage, broccoli, radishes, cauliflower, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes.  For those interested in setting up your own garden, the concrete blocks are ideal, for they won't rot as do wood borders; they don't budge when you toil the soil; and you can plant marigolds in the pockets to keep away the pests.

Put in lots of cabbage and a handful of broccoli and cauliflower plants.  Finished up with radish seeds which turn into beautiful radishes.  The radishes are the stems with two little leaves.

A handful of radishes here. Radishes are a good addition to a salad or simply as a side to your meal.  Some can be hot (spicy) while others are mild. I find the root system fascinating.

Radishes are excellent in salads and as a side vegetable adding color to your plate.  Here you have traditional radishes as well as my first go at heirloom radishes.  Both type started from seeds and mature quite rapidly, which allows for easy and successive harvesting throughout the cooler months.  Radishes grow into the soil, therefore the soil must be loose enough to facilitate this process.  I'm still improving the soil quality in garden #1, so garden #2 and #3 get the benefit of providing nutritious radishes all winter long.
