What on earth am I doing wrong with radishes ?

Every year I try to grow radishes, and every year they grow about 1 ft tall with very little thin red things underneath.
This year I have 3 - 4 ft long rows and I've managed to rescue just .18 decent ones. The row is a bit crowded so perhaps if I thinned them out a little ?
On the other hand though look at my onions.

Yep, the radishes do look pretty crowded, also a little "stretched", like they have been shaded. Thinning them out, and getting them more sun should help your next crop.

Thanks T, i did the thinning yesterday and will sew the seeds more thinly next time.

Young thinnings can be used as spicy microgreens in salads, soups, or sandwiches. Older thinnings are a bit chewy, and so may be better for the compost heap.
