Default Radishes - my Waterloo

I always have good radishes because I plant with the moon cycle. My
grandfather always planted in reference with gravity wave influence. OK OK
maybe just maybe I also fertilize and water the heck out of them. I really
enjoy the Black Spanish variety. If you haven't tasted these then by all
means get some seeds. They are just excellent with a little salt, fresh
bread and of course beer.

I never have luck with radishes, a vegetable easily grown by
3rd graders. They get leggy, but never produce nice fruit. Out of a
whole bunch that took up my (limited) space, I harvested maybe a
measely 5-6 actual radishes.

What am I doing wrong??

I had the same problem until I began watering them every day. It gives

a slight sweetness and they're huge at 30 days. This is from the same
seeds I used the previous year.
