Kitchen Garden - Salada em tapete
I had a tray filled with sprouts of a large variety of salad vegetables, mainly leafy ones. To separate each shoot would take several hours and many shoots would be lost, so I’ve decided to test growing them in mat. I knew I’ve seen it before, but couldn’t recall where, so I just took the tray, separated large chunks, and planted them in rows directly in the ground.
The result will be, that the plants will grow and will stifle each other, because of the density. This would be a problem if I was expecting to harvest one by one, one lettuce, one chicory… like this all I have to do is to wait they grow enough so that I can trim the leaves for a salad, with the advantage that I leave the stalk undamaged. Many of the leafy greens after being trimmed will grow back again, as long as the stalk is left in the soil.
