Outdoor salad.

The final third of our new outdoor salad bed has been the best so far, with few flea-beetle holes, few weeds, and lots of salad leaves (which also enjoyed the recent rain).
Our outdoor salad bed with its three successions - the first bed covered on the right getting ready for re-sowing, the central bed with its old salad, and the bed on the left with its fresh young salad just ready for its first pick.

Alice hoeing paths in the new salad - red frills, rocket, mizuna, mibuna and sessantina.

A mix of the new salad, supplemented with borage flowers from the market garden, plus nasturtium flowers and leaves plus wild rocket from the polytunnels.
