Say Hello to My Little Friends
May was unusually cold and rainy, even by San Francisco standards, so the tomato plants in the back yard veggie garden have barely budged since they went in, but the salad mix has just exploded. The lettuce, mustard greens, spinach, and even the carrots have all gone crazy in the last week. I was so happy to see it, I made this dorky video.
This year I direct-sewed the salad mix seeds in the garden and it’s worked great. The only thing I’d do differently is to plant in stages. I put all these seeds in the ground at once, which means I’ve got a lot of salad to eat right now. Next time I’ll plant a bit once a week, so it’s ready in stages, and I’ll feel less pressure to eat like a rabbit every meal.
