Hi, Brooklyn, Ah, we think weHi, Brooklyn, Ah, we think we understand what you want to know. You need to go buy a seed packet to start radishes. Buy a variety that is an "early" season radish. Plant a certain number of seeds to eat this season plus some extra that you will not pull out of the ground. Instead, you'll let these extra plants "go to seed." Let them get tall and ugly until they sprout seed "pods." Next, let the seed pods dry on the plant. When the seed pods are dry, pull them off the plant. The pods will last a while. To save the seeds, just break open the radish seed pods. You may need a nutcracker to crack them open. The tiny radish seeds are inside the pods. Save your seeds in a cool, dry place until you are ready to harvest.
