Salad Days

Look at how all the salad is going on my kitchen windowsill!

These salad boxes were so simple to make, I just lined some wooden boxes (courtesy of Taj) with a plastic bag with drainage holes, filled with compost, sprinkled on a selection of seeds about 6 weeks ago, and was able to eat the first rocket and mibuna this week. The spinach is wilting a bit but hopefully that will perk up soon.

So not only will I have a fresh selection of salad on hand over the next few months, but it will save me so much money and my bin won't be filled with plastic bags from the supermarket.

I'm trying to encourage everyone else to do the same, if you've got room on your windowsill please do it too!
