2- Sow the seeds in rows, spacing carrots and radishes a couple centimetres apart, and silver beets 30cm apart. Cover with thin layer of soil and firm down gently.

3- Keep your plants well watered and feed them with liquid fertilizer every two weeks so they grow strong and healthy.

4- After about 7 days look out for the seedlings! You can start harvesting radishes in 4 weeks, silver beet in 8 weeks and carrots in 12 weeks from planting.
