Growing my little red buddies was an interesting experience for me. I had little experience growing plants outside before becoming an intern for Washington Gardener Magazine, so it was a challenge at first knowing what were weeds in the garden and what were the radishes. I also had to learn the delicate process of sowing seeds and watering tiny plants. But eventually it all became easier for me and I grew some beautiful radishes!
I would not have been able to grow and eat my food without Kathy’s guidance. I am so grateful for being given this opportunity.
