our organic salad patch

Thanks to a late wet season, the salad patch is off to a great start.  After last year's non-event garden, I researched which varieties were more salt tolerant, drought hardy and heat resistant; and came loaded with potential from Eden Seeds.  It appears that the more pungent greens, like rocket and mustard, fare better; the hermit crabs are obviously perturbed by the bitterness. 

Now that the rain has stopped, and won't be gracing us again until October or November, I don't know how long the vegies will flourish with dry winds, sun and a daily dose of brackish water.  This could be the peak of our salad days.


  1. Very impressed with your gardening prowess.
