A big plastic box of salad greens is most likely a regular item on your weekly grocery list. It's the all-too-familiar Sunday ritual of perusing the produce section, trying to find the best container of overpriced-leaves. You find what looks to be the "freshest" one, but deep down, you know its fate is in part, a tasteless salad and the rest, to rot in the fridge.
Stop shelling out your hard-earned gold for these expensive and nutrient-stripped greens and start growing your own! Patience is hardly a requirement as lettuces mature quickly.
There are hundreds if not thousands of seeds that can pose for salad greens, all coming with diverse flavor & nutrient profiles, especially when consumed fresh. With a square foot of sunny space, you can be picking and eating your own salad in 14-20 days. Once you start harvesting, the greens will actually grow back and you'll be able to harvest again 3-5 days later! If taken care of and occasionally fertilized, your plants will be producing like this for weeks (maybe months) on end.
Give it a shot! Try out your space to see for yourself the best way to grow & maintain a fresh salad buffet.
