Other Greens

Greens

All are to be grown in reasonably moist, fertile soil. Cress, Corn Salad, and Arugula should be sown in place in late winter through mid-spring and harvested before hot weather, or in early fall for a late fall harvest. Mustard greens may be grown in the same way, but often give a harvest well into the summer heat. Collards may be started indoors and set out as transplants 2-4 weeks before last frost date in spring for a summer harvest. Or direct seed in the garden anytime until mid-summer for a fall harvest. A miscellany of crops is offered here. Each is unique; some are warm-growers, others revel in very cool weather. What they all have in common is their diversity of flavors and textures—too good to miss!
