Mid-April sowings

Tomato plants  will be ready in May.They won't cast much shade for weeks.

I'll fill the whole area now, sowing  (not thinly) rows 5" apart of spinach, rocket, mustard, radish, 
beetroot, mixed lettuce, mizuna, cress and oriental leaves.
We,ll pull some seedlings every week or so from early May to  mid-June and use as salad.

These are seedlings from a March sowing

November sowing

I sowed chard, spinach, lettuce, rocket and peas in  november. First flowers on the peas; cabbages are hearting up.
