What are the pros? Nice variety

What are the cons? Incompatible seed depths

Review:

I planted this in April, zone 9. It was a weird spring, with temps ranging from 40s to 80s, sometimes in the same day. The Rocky Top lettuce mix and Asian Stir Fry mix grew very well, but I had trouble with this one and had to reseed. I think I know the problem. Lettuce and orach needs to be planted at the surface, while spinach and kale wants some more depth for example. Then, I had trouble identifying the seedlings from weeds because there's such a huge variety of types. It would be nice to have seedling pictures. It would also be nice to have maybe "subpackets" with the shallow items in one and deeper seeded items in the other. My seed was a few years old, but so were the other mixes I planted, and they did incredibly. I'm intrigued by the mix, and it seems to work for others, but we'll see if my very shallow reseeding produces better results. I will concede that it could be my error. :(

Review:

Zone 7b, planted this mix the 15th of March. Plants were up quick, withstood a couple of light frosts and for 2 weeks now I'm picking salads from the thinnings. Would really like to know the "and more" in the mix as well! I'm not a big fan of the really stong greens like mustard, at least not in a salad. Love the peppery mizuna and arugula. But I toss the stronger greens in with my kale and saute 'em up!

Review:

The salad blend I received were mostly bitter greens with a few lighter tasting varieties intermixed. Every bowl tasted like rocket. I was really hoping for more variety but still a decent mix...what am I going to do with the bulk package!!!

Excellent spicy mix, but what does it look like after it goes to seed?

Review:

My family and company loved this mix! Now I have let it go to seed and a little rangey looking. I wish I knew if some of the seeds out of a long pod are useful in their own right. I see the list of what's in the packet, but then it says, "and more".

Review:

We had a "hot" snap in early March, with temps in the mid-80s... I planted this mix thinking that even if things cooled considerably, the seedlings would make it. As it was... the seeds sprouted within three days, and we had three more mild frosts before the weather stayed warm. I had salad coming out of my ears!!! Definitely produced more than I was expecting... everyone I gave this mix to was raving about the flavors - Baker Creek got a LOT of recommendations from me! I ended up pulling my first sowing, and am already in the midst of growing a second (albeit much smaller) patch... my family is looking forward to a summer of endless salads!
