Salad Blends

Our special blends offer balanced mixtures of wonderful leaf shapes, flavors, textures and colors for delicious and gorgeous spring, summer and fall salads. There will be some variation in germination and growth rates, to give each salad their own unique personality. After all, culinary variety is one of the most valuable spices of life. To best grow Salad Greens, choose a sunny site and amend the soil as necessary with compost and/or well-rotted manure, complete organic fertilizer or dolomite lime. As soon as the ground can be worked in early spring, direct-sow seeds thinly and evenly for harvest as baby leaves (for likely two scissor-harvests). Or, space seed out for mature, full-size leaves. Lightly cover with soil, pat gently and water with a fine spray. Keep the soil lightly moist until seedlings emerge. In very hot weather, Salad Greens benefit from more dappled sunlight via shade cloth or floating row covers. Water evenly and regularly and feed weekly with manure tea and kelp or fish emulsion for optimum growth. Direct-sow seeds every 10 to 14 days through the fall when night frosts threaten. Keep the garden going! No reason to stop just because school is back in session. Lush salads are even more special in the fall after the cacophony of summer vegetables competing for kitchen attention has quieted down and salad greens can reclaim center stage. Average seed life: 1 to 3 years.

Our versatile, easy and popular Asian Greens thrive in cool temperatures, tolerating mild frost. Sow when the danger of heavy frost has passed. Asian Greens appreciate soil with a moderate amount of organic matter dug in. Keep the soil evenly moist for a mild, sweet taste. When growing individuals, thin them to 8" to 10" apart. For ‘baby leaf’ harvesting, lightly broadcast seed, sprinkle with soil and water lightly. As the plants grow to about 3" tall, give them a “haircut” for salads and stir-fries. Feed regularly to enjoy one or two more cuttings from the initial sowing. In cool summer areas, seed at 10 to 14 day intervals, ensuring a steady harvest of fresh, vitamin-rich greens. Hot weather causes hot and/or bitter flavor and bolting. Your last sowing may be toward the end of summer for fall harvest. Protect with shade cloth at the hottest part of summer days if necessary.
