Today in the Garden
We had another busy day in the garden this morning, despite the overcast sky and chilly wind.
We harvested some more salad. We pulled the last of the radishes, harvested all the corn salad (mache), harvested the little bit of good spinach and pulled the rest, and harvested the mesclun and lettuce. We got 22 oz. of salad mix today, which is worth about $14.00.
We planted peppers where the radishes, corn salad, and spinach had been. We also planted peppers in amongst the remaining salad mix and lettuce. As the peppers get bigger, we’ll pull the rest of the plants out of that area.
We planted the third section of the Salad Garden. We switched from “spring” salad varieties, to some things that will hopefully tolerate the summer’s heat a little better. We planted arugula, bull’s blood beets (for beet greens), and 3 varieties of lettuce that are more heat-tolerant: Black Seeded Simpson, Simpson Elite, and Coastal Star.
