Returning home from Wendy Shillam’s inspiring ‘Leaf Lore’ workshop (see previous post), I lost no time in sowing some leaf seeds in my equivalent of the Rooftop Vegplot – a far from picturesque container beneath my kitchen window. I’m hoping this will prove to be both slug proof and cat proof! The seeds were an improvised mix of cut and come again varieties such as Salad Bowl, mizuna and rocket and I must say I’m impressed with the speed at which they’ve come up in the world. I’m wary of cropping them too soon, although according to Wendy they are already at the super-nutritious ‘micro veg’ stage. I’ll give it another three weeks and hope to be able to tuck into a good homegrown salad then.
