Summer Fun Salad Mix (Organic)
Heat-tolerant greens that will add a refreshing kick to summer salads. Mix includes amaranth, purslane, Buck’s Horn plantain, chard, as well as summer lettuces, endives, and more. Unlike the Delicious Diversity Mesclun Mix, there are no Brassicas in this one. Due to different seed sizes and maturity dates, this mix is recommended for the home garden. Formerly listed as Summer Salad Mix.
Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil May through July. Transplant into the garden about 3-4 weeks after sprouting to 4″-6″ spacing. Or, direct sow May through August. We recommend sowing in succession for continual harvest.
Saving seed from a seed mix may be an adventure. Plants used for seed production should have more space than plants sown for salad mix, and varieties in this mix may cross. Collect seeds when seedheads are dry brown. Dance to thresh, winnow to clean.
