Feed Yourself! Growing Organic Greens in Your Organic Landscape
Since your landscape is organic, why not tuck easy edibles into your garden among your perennials and shrubs? The easiest edibles to grow are a variety of greens. By seed or transplant, lettuces make a wonderful border in the color garden, or taller greens such as kale and mustard greens, make a perfect focal point in containers. Best part about growing edibles in your garden? Not only do they look beautiful and add delightful texture, they are easily accessible to add to cool season recipes, quick salads, and holiday meals.
To plant by seed, just distribute seeds in the area you desire to grow greens and keep moist by watering lightly by hand daily. Once they sprout, water every few days. Keep moist, not soggy. Be sure not to cover the seeds as they need sunlight to germinate. No digging required!
Your local garden center will have many varieties of transplants to add to the garden. Red and green leafed lettuce, arugula, spinach, collard & mustard greens, kale, kohlrabi and more! Feed with an organic fertilizer at planting time.
