Speculation: Not a good idea to plant seeds indoors because they grow so fast. And/or, these were planted at the wrong sign of the moon and are growing tall when the emphasis should be their roots–the radish. I plan to clip them off and add the green to my garden salad.

Seeds failurePostscript, March 4, 2016: Full disclosure: The organic Redina lettuce seeds and organic Evergreen Long White Bunching onions did not sprout. Although previously unopened, the “sell by” dates were 04/15 and 11/14. Did yours truly do something wrong, or were the seeds the problem?? I’ll try to “sprout” them to add to a salad and that may answer my questions.
