Today I'm going to spend some time planting radish seeds through out the various beds. There are a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, both Karin and my father in law are big fans of radishes, so they're a surety to be actually eaten (rather than ending up in the compost heap). Secondly, they are also a good companion plant for other fruit and vegies.
Companion planting is something else I'm going to be looking into for the Autumn/Winter season. If I can get pest control through the development of symbiotic relationships rather than the use of chemicals, all the better I think.
