Autumn Salad Bed
I harvested the red onions from this bed this afternoon....they are laid on the bed behind to dry for a day or two. I was surprised by just how many onions I have from this bed. I had thought that the crop was a bit dissappointing, but I actually have about 30 very good specimens. There are more at the plot too.
After that I cleaned the bed and decided that it would be ideal for my Autumn salads.
So...this evening I sowed 11 furrows, filled with compost, with
Oriental Mixed Salad Leaves
Misticanza (mix of lettuce, chcories and endives for cut and come again)
Mixed lettuce leaves (red and green)
Corn Salad "Cavello"
Spring onion "White Lisbon"
All-in-all a good evening's work. Now I can sit and knit!
