More salads

The second lot of salads are now all in: I planted out the last half a tray (around 75 modules) of land cress this afternoon, to give a nice variety of brassicas (spicy leafs) and cooler crisp leaves, such as radicchio, lamb’s lettuce and endive. I also picked the first few mustard leaves from the first lot of salad in the new tunnel today, for mixed salad bags: very exciting!

I’m planning an expanded Salad Bar for the Hartley Christmas market at the end of November, offering customers the chance to sample individual leaves and see what they think of each. Last time succulent claytonia and hot giant red mustard were the favourites; it’s just nice to show people that salad doesn’t have to = boring!
