Summer salad sowings

default Summer salad sowings

Post by Chilli-head on 26th June 2015, 7:36 am

So, the salads I sowed on spring have all been eaten, or are turning bitter as they run to seed.  And a row of quite nice looking lettuce had to go on the compost heap he cause it was so covered on greenfly.

This leaves me with a space for something, but what ?  It is now a bit hot for lettuce, and a bit early for oriental leaves like pak choi or chinese cabbage.  Anyone have any interesting salad suggestions  ?

Oh, I was going to suggest pak choi - I thought it was supposed to be sowed after midsummer. But don't have much experience of it.

Peas? - to eat as pea shoots. Beetroot for leaves? Radishes.

Too hot for lettuce is not a concept I am familiar with here.

I have a feeling that Mizuna might withstand hot weather better than lettuce.

Gosh, the year is whizzing past. It probably is time to sow pak choi now FB. I've also had a rummage through my seed box and come up with some other oriental leaves - no mizuna, though I have grown it sucessfully before. I think I'll use some of the space as a seed bed for some overwintering cabbage too. And I might try Florence fennel again. Always bolts though !
