Thursday wasn't too bad a day again. Dry and reasonably mild for the end of November. A little bit of sunshine brightened up the day.
I thought it was about time I updated how our indoor (greenhouse) winter salad bar was doing. Unfortunately the answer is not very well. It certainly is not a success story at the minute and I can’t see things improving much as we head into winter.
From top to bottom - Spring Onions, Spicy Mixed, Mesculan, Mizuna and Radish
All sown on 01 October 2015
From left to right - Spinach, Mustard and Wild Rocket
All sown on 21 October 2015
We've sown three large salad bags only one of those looks like producing any worthwhile leaves at the moment. Our Winter Density lettuce plants seem to be growing better than the mixed varieties of salad leaves, radishes and spring onions.
