|Wintercress (Barbarea spp) sown by my own slightly grubby hands|
|Red Russian Kale|
|Egyptian walking onions|
|Hairy Bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta), an edible weed|
|Lettuce, many heads of it have survived the frost onslaught|
|Another kind of lettuce (I often sow mixed salad leaf seeds so no idea which one it is)|
|A jar of sprouts|
|my February salad|
|and added cherry toms, old Dutch cheese, ghurkins and sprouts and sprayed it all with balsamico vinegar & olive oil, then milled some fresh black pepper and sea salt over it|

Hi Yolanda - your salad hunt was well worth it! Hopefully lots of us will find the Challenge slightly easier next month :)
I'm really surprised the chard croaked, but the lettuce didn't!
This month's Salad Days is now up, but as I came in to comment, I've already got your link to add to Mr Linky :)
I would look at those plants and think weeds. That is amazing how you made such a beautiful salad. xo Jenny
Thank you so much for showing those photos! I think of you as such a perfect gardener...it's nice to see that not all of your plants cooperate (just like mine!). But even though it might have been an effort...that salad looks yummy!
How lovely and inspiring - like your kitchen kitchen garden!
Glad your search for greens was rewarded - that is a good looking salad!
A difficult time of year to grow anything at all. You've done well - if only there were home grown tomatoes, I am just sick of the horrid supermarket toms.
Yolanda a great salad! I've never put gerkins in mine but worth trying! Nice to check into your Bliss! Anna
Your salad's plants are really nice. You should take good care of them. You preperd nice salad.
Healthy and delicious thumbs up!
I need to eat more salad! That looks great! I am definitely planting salad ingredients this year!
