Frankly, I’ve never done this, but here’s my thought: Like any successful marriage, depends which carrot and which radish mingle. I suppose if you tried to make a 50-day-to-harvest radish live with a carrot, it would be a bad match; a 21-day radish like ‘D’Avignon’ might make the carrot happier. Next time, try letting your carrots have their own bedroom altogether. Use pelleted carrot seed, so the spacing is easy and thinning isn’t required, such as the stuff sold at Johnny’s: http://www.johnnyseeds.com/catalog/search.aspx?scommand=search&search=pelleted%2bcarrot
