My bok choy, radish and lettuce are coming up nicely, but seem to have long curved stems before the plant starts. What could be causing this? We have had a lot of rain lately and consequently very little sunshine. Here you can see the detail on the radish stems. They also dont seem to be developing a bulb.
I went though all the bok choy and mounded up the soil around the bases, so they were no longer falling over drunkenly, and removed some and planted them elsewhere so that they have room to grow. I just left the radish alone, should I do the same thing to the radish? Did I plant the seeds too close to the surface? I also have a cucumber already - wow they are quick!
