Hot-Weather Greens Collection
Tired of nursing along bitter lettuce, bolting greens, and pest-ridden kale or broccoli through the heat of summer? Instead of fighting to prolong the season for standard cool-weather greens, try some that love the heat. Most of these are little-known in North America. Some may be familiar to you from vacations in the tropics. They all are fast-growing, mild-flavored, and give you something fresh and green for summer meals. Includes callaloo amaranth, malabar spinach, golden purslane, and a lettuce especially bred to sprout and grow in summertime. (Most lettuce will not sprout if temps are 80 degrees or over.) Four packets of seed.
