I've eaten all my radishes but have now sown some more seeds so let's see what happens this time round! I had no idea slugs are drawn to beer!!

I have an idea, it may be slugs.
So, try this: put beer in a bowl or pot or whatever nerby your plants, and see the next day what you have caught!
If you do it tonight, you may have a lot tomorrow morning, then, you have our answer.

Good luck
anyway, radishes grow completly (from the seed to your plate) within 16 days...not too much

Magpies...Put some chicken wire/olive net over top. If they are left alone, it is from the sky, if not, from the ground.

set up a "rabbit cam" to see what the culprit is, could be any rodent at this time of year

Do rats really eat radishes?? And why not the strawberries which are right next to them? And why haven't I seen a rat in the four years I've been here?! I'm amazed!
