This week the salads have come on stream in quantity.
I picked another big batch of Baby Leaf Salad - the third from my little 18" square mini-bed.
After harvesting these leaves I pulled up the plants from which they came, and started again. This time I have used a mix of several types of Lettuce and a couple of types of Endive. Specifically no Oriental Brassicas!
We have also had Lettuces. First to come into the kitchen was this "Tom Thumb":
We liked this one. The texture was particularly good - firmer than a Butterhead, but softer than a Cos. Nice flavour too.
Later in the week we had this "Dubacek" Lettuce, one of those grown from seeds sent to me from the Czech Republic.
Another good lettuce. It's somewhat like "Salad Bowl", but perhaps a bit more robust. Not one that gives up as soon as it hits the salad-dressing!
Of course there were more Radishes too:
This is going to be the last batch for a while. We have finished all those I sowed in April. I do have a few more coming on, but I only sowed them a few days ago so it will be a couple of weeks before they are ready.
Another batch of Rhubarb. This stuff grows pretty quickly once it gets going!
