START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In early spring, sow seeds in finely worked soil in full sun. Shake seeds from the palm of your hand, broadcasting them about 1/2 in. apart over the entire seedbed or in wide rows, and cover lightly and evenly with 1/4 in. of fine soil. Firm soil gently and water with a fine spray. Keep seedbed evenly moist. Make small successive sowings until summer weather turns hot for a consistent supply. Plant again in late summer for fall harvesting.

GROWING NOTES

This mesclun mix thrives in mild weather with consistent moisture. To extend the sowing season into hot weather, sow in light shade or erect a canopy of loosely woven shade cloth over the seedbed. Birds are often attracted to tender young seedlings so protect them if necessary.

HARVEST AND USE

To harvest by the "cut and come again" method, wait until plants are 4 to 5 inches tall. Cut as much as you need, using scissors to shear off a patch of leaves 1 to 2 in. above the soil level. Water well and fertilize lightly and plants will regrow for several more cuttings. Dress with a simple vinaigrette to set off the wonderful colours, diverse fresh flavors and delicate textures of this delicious salad mix.
