Harvesting during the month of May makes me very happy. My salad greens are ready! I am trying to use them consistently, so I get my fill before the weather gets too warm and the greens get bitter. I’m thinking I have at least a couple weeks. I can’t remember when I put these seeds in the ground…I think it was about mid-April.
I harvest my salad directly into a big bowl with a few ice cubes in the bottom to keep it crisp. I snip the outer leaves of the plants, because new growth comes up from the middles. I also threw in some dill and mint, because we have copious (read: invasive plants) amounts of both and I love them.
Jon and I ate giant salads for dinner last night.
