Starting Up the Salad Factory

Also sown a couple of weeks ago, the beginnings of this year’s salad factory: two trays of mixed salad leaves and a tray of peas (for pea shoots).

The tray just visible on the left there was sown with a second batch of peas on Sunday just gone (we do love our pea shoots, Jo and I). I’ve also got a couple of large troughs of beetroot (likewise sown a couple of weeks ago and just starting to peek through now) and I’ve got plans for plenty more salad-stuff to follow: monthly successional sowings of more mixed leaves, and a hopefully about a dozen lollo rosso lettuces (which I’ve had great success with in the past couple of years as a cut-and-come-again crop) and a few tomato varieties. I’ve also got those interesting-sounding salad herb seeds (from The Real Seed Catalogue) to sow in April and May.

It’s going to be a great year for salads at our house, weather permitting!
