It’s usually at this time of year that my garden scheduling gets put to the test. I now have masses of Mizuna going to seed and a few other lettuces going over. The replacements are just a tad too small at the moment so I’m thinking that we may have a week or so with slightly bitter salads or none at all. On the plus side the salad burnet is a real eye opener. It’s a very very traditional salad leaf that lasts into winter apparently. Pick the leaves young. I just can’t pin down the taste (nutty, sweet, savoury) but I highly recommend it. On the other hand Saltwort is a complete waste of space. It comes as a replacement for samphire but my tiny plants have done nothing for weeks. The taste is insipid and it just doesn’t make the cut for precious growing space in the garden.
