The joy of salad

As we are coming into salad season I’ve taken advantage of growing space before the additional Summer crops are planted in. Catch crops like salad onions, a second sowing of radish, lettuce and a salad mix of rocket, mustard and mizuna¬†have all featured. I hope these will stay in the garden until September, after that it’ll be Winter Salad leaves, something I’m new to and very excited about.

But before then, I optimistically look forward to colourful leaves with basil and lemon dressing, fresh eggs to be made into a summer frittata eaten in the back garden after work.
