The inner city lady who upped sticks and headed country

Daikon is about the only thing that gets me traffic from google. So, to fill the English-language internet knowledge gap, I give you Daikon!
It didn’t turn out very big.

I have no idea how big it’s meant to be so it looks A-OK to me.
How’s your broad beans? I’ve got about half a doz visible beans, currently about 12mm long. Flowers still opening at the top. A couple of plants have got rusty spots on the leaves.

The daikon at the market are like large carrots. These daikon are tiny, but then, as you can see, the carrots are tinier. I told the kid it was a carrot and he laughed at me.
The broad beans look healthy, and I’ve got flowers, but no sign of actual beans.

Daikon can get enormous, but that’s not necessarily a good thing. I’ve only just got Owy to acknowledge that they might be acceptable after a bumper crop the first year we grew them and no idea of what to do with a daikon glut. There’s only so many pickled daikon anybody needs.

I figure pulling up the daikon when they’re at a size where we can eat them in on meal is indeed a good thing. I do need to work out what to do with the remaining half a dozen that are in the ground.
The really sad news is that I pulled up these two, had a bit of a taste of one, and then didn’t quite get around to cooking them before they went sad and floppy. So I composted them.
