Salad Table – 06/10/2010

I’ve posted a couple of close up shots of the compost/potato bins, so that you can get a good look at the coat hanger wires that are used to hold all the pallets together. Boy do those grass clipping need a good turning in the bin, but its kind of surprising that I’m still able to add grass clippings to the pile. Since with last years cinder block compost bin, in only two mowing I had filled the bin to the top. Plus now that I’m looking it over, I might pull some of the clippings out of the bin, and lay them down as ground mulch out in the garden, since the weed situation on the right half of the garden is still out of control. I ended up pulled up two 5 gallon buckets of weeds from the garden one afternoon and it barely looks like I made a dent.

Out of the all the different greens planted on the table I have to say that I’m the most disappointed with the Bordeaux greens in the center section. I mean just look at them, they really didn’t put out like I thought they might. But the other four are totally rocking, especially the mesclun and the spicy greens mix. But I won’t have known unless I planted a test patch, call it a lesson learned.
