Mesclun is one of the easiest of all garden crops to grow. Sow the seeds and then begin to harvest the baby leaves in two to five weeks, depending upon the season and the temperature of air and soil. This is such a pretty crop, use it as an edible, ornamental border in the vege garden or grow in seed trays for a simple but elegant short-lived crop. Sow seeds every two weeks to ensure constant supply.
