Spicy Mesclun Mix - 15 Baby Greens
Baby Greens are usually cool weather plants, great for spring or fall, but many get surly in hot weather and go to seed. They do not taste good.

Scatter the seeds anywhere, a planter outside your back door, an empty patch in the garden, anywhere the soil is fluffy and moist. You can even plant a lettuce lawn. This spicy mix includes 15 varieties of heat-tolerant greens, all meant to be harvested when young. In a few weeks, you can harvest enough baby leaves to make a salad. Lots of color, texture and tang.
Scatter the seeds in a shallow planter or your garden, cover with 1/4" of fine soil and keep moist. Thin the plants to several inches apart (and eat the thinnings.) When plants are about 4"-5" tall, harvest begins. Snip off the outermost leaves. The plants will keep making new ones.
