Just a week after sowing and those Radishes are up and growing...as they belong to the Brassica family they need to be netted so the cabbage moths don't lay their eggs on the leaves where they hatch into caterpillars that will eat big holes!!

 
Those Ruby Brussels Sprouts are growing bigger and just starting to show tiny sprouts.

A quick wander around the beds to see how everything is growing. This growth will slow down now with the temperature dropping.
