To ensure a continuing crop of salads throughout the summer, now that we are picking so regularly, last weekend I sowed a new row of radishes alongside the last of the current crop.
I also sowed a couple of rows of rocket, finding some suitable spaces around the vegetable patch.
This is our first rocket sowing this year; we overlooked it when ordering our seeds in the spring, but being one of the only fresh salads that we are buying regularly rather than growing, I thought that we had better get a crop or two in now before it is too late!
The mixed salad leaves and romaine lettuces that I sowed a couple of weekends ago are big enough to transplant into the garden now, to take over when we have exhausted our current lettuces.
Just need to find a little space to put them…
… and remember how big those romaine lettuces will become! This was yesterday’s freshly harvested romaine lettuce; the leaves now washed, spun and bagged in the fridge will last us all week.
