I've always thinned my radishes after the third leaf appeared, to about 2"
apart.  It's interesting - at least to me - that I'm now planting the same radish
here in MN that I planted in TX, but down south, when properly thinned, they made
nice globes.  Here, no matter how they're thinned, they're elongated.  Still
taste as good (we eat all these ourselves), just different shape, so it doesn't
bother me.  Just curious.
