I know it seems pitifully late to many of you gardeners, but I finally got a nice cutting of salad greens for the first time today.
This is the bed of greens I started under a cold frame on April 11th this year. We had many, many nights of hard frost after that, and I finally took the cold frame off on May 15th. (The blank spot on the left end of the bed was French Breakfast radishes that have already been consumed with gusto. I replanted more there yesterday.)
I've been snitching spinach leaves for a while now but today was the first time I cut lettuce and arugula, too.
Now I've got to get some yummy dressings made up and ready in the refrig. During the summer months, we usually eat one big salad a day.
