Grand Rapids Lettuce Seeds - A long standing favorite, Grand Rapids produces medium-large plants that have wavy, frilled, deeply cut, light green leaves. Nice uniformity. Perfect for cold-frames, greenhouse growing or in the garden of course. Crisp, tend and tasty. Resistant to heat and tipburn resistant.
Mesclun - Sweet Salad Mix - Sweet lettuces and tangy, tender greens are pre-mixed in just the right proportions. The French approach to salad greens ("mesclun" means "mixture"). Sweet lettuces and tangy, tender greens are pre-mixed in just the right proportions as you pick them from your garden. This classic mesclun is a feast for the eyes and a gourmet treat. It includes arugula, chervil, endive, mache, four lettuces (Oak Leaf, Prizeleaf, Red Salad Bowl, Green Ice), radicchio and upland cress. Grows best in cool weather and full sun to partial shade. We also got a Mesclun - Spicy Mix - as well!
Full Heart Batavian Endive (Escarole) — Large thick dark green leaves, ten to twelve inch diameter, compact heads, that are easy blanching. Broad leaf endive varieties, or escarole, tend to be less bitter than the curly leaf endive varieties. It can be eaten like other greens either fresh as part of a green salad, or sauteed or chopped and added into soups and stews.
I also picked up some White Lisbon Bunching Onions, Bright Lights Swiss Chard, Carnival Hybrid Mix Sweet Peppers, Little Finger Carrots.
I was sitting here waiting for 2 of my co-workers to get here so we can start planning and I figured I would do a quick blog post about my findings last night!
