Homegrown mesclun

Mesclun—that mix of, usually, lettuce, chard, mustard, arugula, and other greens—is one of the easiest crops to grow at home, and you can even create your own seed blends to customize the flavor. And when you grow your own, it costs just pennies per serving.

It’s delicious both raw and cooked, and does best in cool weather.
