>Salad days… – #1314


…or weeks.

This is the way you do it.

Buy plugs of salad plants when they’re this big (cost €0.15 an each), put them in a planter with home-made compost (not “compohst”. Compost), light the fuse give them some water and stand well clear.

You’ll be harvesting leaves in about 3 weeks.

We’ve got a mixture of Romana, oakleaf and Lollo Rosso and Bianco. Throw in some sorrel leaves, some ruby chard and whatever else you’ve got that’s leafy and edible and away you just do go.
