I just had to share a photo of my salad leaves…
I’ve had an allotment on and off for the last couple of year, but I have never quite managed to grow salad leaves or lettuce. I’ve tried so many times to grow salad leaves, I always felt it was something I ”should” be able to grow. Even the allotment keeper gave me some lettuce plants last summer which he had started off…and a week after I put them in…they were gone! Somehow they either get eaten by rabbits or they just never grow.
I’m assuming this turn around is the new greenhouse effect. I’m loving having a place where I can start growing things which I have not been able to grow before.
Oh also, I picked this salad leaf mix because it was called ‘Fancy Summer’, I really like that its all different colours and shapes. I’m so excited, I can’t wait to try some!!!
