There are few things as rewarding as harvesting out of your very own garden and even more thrilling if you get to eat it.

You can find a previous post here on how to grow your very own salad leaves in containers. I decided to keep today’s post short and sweet as the block in which I type only allows me to see one sentence at a time today (super frustrating).

I must say it is a little bit of effort to keep salad pest (aka snail) free and to keep it watered. The benefit of having salad leaves readily available whenever needed surpass all the effort however. It lasts so much longer by keeping the leaves on the plants than it lasts cut-off in a fridge. Also a plus point, I hate wanting to make a fresh crispy salad and find welted leaves when opening the fridge door. Then last but not least it is a treat to have garnish available whenever needed, such as basil leaves or parsley.

I hate having to buy a whole packet for only a few leaves to go on top of a dish. Again, so much easier and economical. M@Home
