Here’s a fun backyard, balcony or window sill project! These cut-and-come-again greens, grow easily from seed with some sunshine and water. Once they’re about 5″ to 6″, trim them back to make salads or smoothies and they will grow all over again. Fun right! I picked up a packet of organic Asian Mixed Green seeds from Sweet Peas on Roncesvalles for a few bucks.
You don’t get more local, organic or fresh than this!
