Grow Baby Salad so You Always Have Fresh Salads on Hand

If you don’t have room to grow an entire garden for fresh vegetables and fruits, choose a young salad. You will be able to grow an almost constant stock in a small space.

A “baby” salad is not really a special kind of salad – it is just a salad that you plant for the purpose of harvesting before it reaches maturity. Since lettuce heads never grow to full size, you can plant the seeds closer together. You can even grow young lettuce in a planter that will fit on your window or balcony.

When you harvest, remove only about 75% of the leaves. This gives the plant a chance to grow and ensures that you have enough for your next salad. For more detailed instructions, check out the full post at the link below.
