I'm growing radishes for the first time.Tasty! What does 'they will mark the rows' mean? Thanx.

Radish will mark the row next door if planted next to some other seeds that come up in more days than radishes. For example if you plant __?__ veggie that comes up in 10 days, next to a row of radishes, the radishes will come up certainly by day 2 ( all things present as to sunlight and water). That mean the ?? veggie will be along side and in next row but not until day 10. That way you know not to plant something else in row space next to radishes. Neat trick I never thought of. Wish I had marked my lettuce groups with one radish seed in middle.

They are talking about planting radish with other seeds to mark the row. Like a couple of radish between two lettuce seeds/plants. Radish will germinate in 2-5 days to show where the others are planted. I suggest you do a thin line of itself. Plant the other seeds in a different row. What I do now is have soil nice and fine and level, pat it down a bit., then plant seeds in a thin row - pinch a few seeds in your fingers and wriggle your fingers to release a seed or two at a time. Then cover the seeds with seed raising mix or fine potting mix. Try and keep the seeds shaded until they germinate. Keep the plant area moist all the time.
