In fact, not just the classic salad but all the varieties of leaves that are consumed as a salad. All can be grown in the garden. It is enough if you plan a few nests, which you can periodically refresh with seeds and have organic salad all summer.

It may seem complicated to cultivate tomatoes but after you experience this culture you will see that for the garden behind the house it is much easier than you can imagine. From a tomato nest, you’ll have about 25 pounds of tomatoes. They do not grow all at once, but from three tomato nests, each raised on a trellis, you can get the need for organic tomatoes for your own consumption.
Always, seedlings are planted in the garden only after the frost (at the end of March, early April), at a distance of 60 to 90 centimeters, in fertile soil (to be fattened with compost) and very well drained. To grow harmoniously, tomatoes need at least 8 hours of sunshine a day.
Besides all these ideal vegetables that you can cultivate in your garden, on the list are all the aromatic herbs, starting with parsley and dill and ending with the exotic ones: marjoram, thyme, rosemary, which you can hold in large pots near the house, in the right place, according to the needs of each plant, because they are all very decorative.
