Most salads are quick growing and ready to harvest just 5 to 6 weeks from seeding. They can be grown in garden beds. Most salads are cool weather crops, growing in early spring when temperatures are in the 10 to 20 C range. It’s easy to grow your own salad and it can be grown all summer long in your salad garden beds. I’be been gardening in garden beds for a very long time, and I love gardening.
