One of the first vegetables that we crave in spring is the Radish, and it is so easy of culture that every family can have it fresh, crisp, and in abundance. The smallest garden patch of a few feet square, will give enough for a family. It is sown either in drills or broadcast, care being taken that the seed is not put in too thickly; from one to two inches apart either in drill or broadcast, being the proper distance, as usually every seed germinates. The best varieties are the Red and French Turnip, and the Short Top Long, Red, or White. If wanted specially early, the above sorts are best for hot-bed forcing; for summer and winter use the yellow and gray varieties are preferred.
