Do you garden with a partner or is it " all yours"? We two share in the decision making regarding many things here but our approach is different when it comes to planting seeds. He likes following the packet directions: Lettuce "Butterhead Speckles".. seed depth 1/8 inches; seed space 1 inch; row spacing 8 inches. I tend to ignore the packet totally, make a line in the soil and throw the seeds in, twenty seconds or less and I'm done! Actually, no line at all would suit me just fine...fill the entire space with seeds and let them fight it out..it's all good, early, green eating. What has evolved in the partnership is what you see above...a compromise ;-) rows planted intensely.
Arugula, India Mizuna, baby red Pac choi, tiny lovely new D'Avignon radish, first crescents of spinach, spears of early Egyptian Walking Onion and garlic...the whole lot tossed in a sweet and mildly vinegar/lemon dressing... there's punch in them there greens!
