Gardening is good therapy. We should do it, not just because of the produce but because it helps to link us to the earth which is part of our evolutionary heritage. So is caring for animals (dogs, cats, goats, chickens, etc.) Perhaps a lot of our psychological and emotional problems could be reduced if we spent more time with mother nature--not just observing it, but interacting with it.

Your mother planted radishes because radishes are a no fail crop; good gardener or lousy gardener, radishes will succeed for you--and they mature before the southwest sun scorches many other crops. Radishes can be ignored, under-fertilized, under-watered, under-appreciated...and they will still succeed.

I cheated this year and bought starters, but hey, I'm the one that's watered them every day, and weeded. It's pretty exciting to see the first of my strawberries grow.
