Growing Radish

View the Radish page

i left radish plants in garden last summer. they have kept growing. now they are a large twisted root with branches coming of them with small white flowers. i have noticed that there i a large amount of pods.on each plant. on closer inspection of the pods i have found that each pod i picked has 2 or 3 green seeds. if i pick the pods a this stage and dried them will i get viable seed. i would like to do this as i have kept this garden bed organic as much as i can. i cant stop the bees cross pollinating. but im still trying to keep it organic. Thanks for your help

Try and wait until the pods are dried. I did this with a few plants and had more seeds for next year than I knew what to do with :)
