Cold Hardy Mache
Ahhh, so what is actually growing under the cloches in my garden? What has survived the winter into mid February? Gala mache seems to be the winner. Late fall I planted a few varieties of cool season greens. I sprinkled some spinach, kale, arugula, dandelion and mache seeds on the soil, pressed them in then covered with some glass cloches. I shut the gate to the garden for the season and just peered out the window every now and again. The dandelion is doing ok but the green, rosebud lettuces growing close to the ground are thriving. This lettuce is tasty and so fun to eat on this cold day.
