Secrets for successful greens
So tonight I went out to the garden--the first time this week since we have had little break in wet weather--and pulled my bed of greens only to find that all of them are bitter. I'm not sure if I waited too long. I didn't allow any to bolt, mulched them and planted them with the hope of some shade but my beans weren't able to provide shade quick enough. But this really isn't the first time as I have always had difficulty planting greens, with the exception of kale and spinach.
Since gardening my kids have become veggie lovers, but I haven't converted them to liking fresh greens yet. Is there any way to grow greens successfully in the summer?
