029 Chapter 3 Deciding what to grow One way to achieve a succession is by ongoing propagation of sturdy plants, preferably in a greenhouse. Work out when crops will finish and have another plant ready to fill the space. Most salads, beetroot, French beans, spinach, kale, fennel, kohlrabi and other vegetables are around for only half a season, giving lots of interesting combinations to play with. Look at the table below to pick out a few. Apart from corn salad (lamb's lettuce), salads are not included in this table because there are simply too many possibilities, arising from their great number and rapid growth.

Spring salad sowing should be lettuce above all, as it grows most healthily then and is not in a rush to make seed until later in the summer. Furthermore, frequent and careful picking of its leaves will delay the seeding attempt by at least a month (see Chapter 9). In contrast to lettuce, all the oriental greens have an internal clock that is similar to rocket, so it really is not a good idea to sow mizuna or pak choi in the spring. Your leaf harvest will be quite small, and they will be of relatively poor quality.

Chapter 4 What’s in season? Growing your own food is a complete antidote to the seasonal uniformity of supermarket shelves. Out in the garden there are still four seasons, and it is vital to understand how they affect our sowing, planting and harvesting. Sowing at the right time for healthy plants Confusing signals abound, from nurseries offering plants out of season, to seed packets advising unnaturally long sowing seasons, presumably in the hope that we use up more seed. What we really need is information about when is the best time to sow for the plant to achieve its full potential and grow most healthily.
