Harvesting: Salad Greens

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Some harvested Curly Kale, Freckles Romaine, and Butterhead Buttercrunch Lettuce Freckles Romaine growing in the garden

There's a little bit of a salad garden going on around here. We've reached a point in the growing season that we can pretty much pick a side salad for dinner everyday. A little buttercrunch butterhead, a lot of Freckles Romaine, and some young curly kale leaves as an accent. Perhaps a leaf or two of red mustard. I think next year I'd like to grow a couple more varieties of heat-resistant lettuce to basically grow a mesclun mix.

Earlier in the season, there'll be arugula, but it's busy going to seed right now (too hot):

The dog also enjoys eating salads, but maybe not in spring when that salad included a few leaves of red mustard greens (spicy!!!).
