Growing your own salads- Part 3

Planting the garden:
The strategy for getting the most out of our small space involves successive plantings. We plant, enjoy the produce, but continue planting and pulling up dead plants throughout the season.

Starting in March peas, lettuce, spinach, and radishes as well as all the herbs were direct seeded. The herbs to indoor pots, everything else to the garden. (We inherited the strawberry plants from the previous tenant, so those were already planted).

Garden Layout:
2 ft row peas
2 x 2 ft row leaf lettuce
2 x 2 ft row spinach
2 x 2 ft row radishes
Border of nastursums (supposed to deter pests)
