Mesclun Mix in the Raised Garden Bed

Our neighbor had this commercially manufactured raised garden bed in her garden, and for the last few years we planted it with tomatoes next to the small shed. This year, we decided to try something different. We moved the bed closer to the house and planted it with a mesclun mix. It’s looking great! It’s kind of a funky container, but I think we may have found a good use for it.

I thought that having a dedicated raised bed would make weeding much easier– and I was right on that account. I was able to get the soil nearly weed-free before I planted the mesclun seed so that was a bonus. The sprouts are reaching a good size so our neighbor is planning on making a spring salad for a Memorial Weekend dinner.
