Greens - Miner's Lettuce - Montia perfoliata, Claytonia perfoliata

Hardy annual Heirloom. The cold-hardy, small, fleshy leaves of Miner's Lettuce sprout in springtime in part-shade in the wild. White flowering does not make the greens bitter. Add this to your garden menu and enjoy a winter green beloved of the miners in the Gold Country of California. Use like similarly flavored spinach, in salads or steamed. Native to parts of North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Soil and Water: Grows best in well drained, loamy soil that is evenly moist. Tolerates moderate amounts of frost.

Planting and Growing: Germinate outdoors under row cover to discourage birds. Direct sow 4-6 weeks before last frost, then again in late summer for fall harvest. A good growing choice for winter greens in a greenhouse or under row cover. Plant new seeds every two weeks for continuous harvest.

Harvesting and Storage: Leaves should be eaten just after picking.
