It is officially gardening season in Northeast Missouri, and each day I dip into my seed storage container and start a few varieties indoors and direct sow a few more in the garden. I’m a firm believer in a slow and steady approach to gardening – even a half hour’s work each day will lead to a lot of food!
Right now, I am focused on growing salad greens. My early spring standards always include lettuce, kale, swiss chard, mesclun, and collards. But this spring, I’m feeling a bit sassy, so I’m throwing a few more favorites into the mix.
I’ve selected five of my favorite spring greens to share with you today. These five greens are easy to grow, and will add a little diversity and flavor to your salad blend.
