Just wanted to show you that I am still living up to this reputation.
This is the normal type - mixed lettuces:
This one is an oriental version:
And this is another:
|Komatsuna, Mustard, Bekana|
This spinach is still immature, but I have started to harvest just a few leaves. This container has two types in it - "Fiorana F1" and "Mikado F1".
This is a type of Spinach called "Bordeaux", again still immature, but I'm growing it with the intention of using it at the Baby Leaf stage, and not expecting it to reach maturity. This is why I have sown it so densely.
This is my latest fad - Red Basil, harvested very young - almost at the "microgreens" stage. Ready in only about three weeks from sowing. It's lovely - sweet, "clovey", but not overpowering. Try it!
|This Red Basil was added as an "enhancer" to some of the Daddy Salad...|
Finally, a reminder that with Daddy Salad, successional sowing is strongly recommended. The salad grows very quickly, and will not keep for very long, so it is best to sow a new batch every couple of weeks. My last photo shows one tray reaching the end of its life whilst another is just starting.
