Today i harvested corn salad. I sowed the plants in pots last autumn and planted them outside in November, 3 plants together, some 15 cm apart in the line, rows about 40 cm apart. I gave them quite some compost as all leafy vegetables like that. Although the winter gave quite some frost, the plants survived on their own without damage. Cold months of January, February and March slowed down growth but now we have plenty of fresh salad.
These corn salad plants have somewhat suffered from frost but can later be harvested.
In a greenhouse, corn salad plants are even better protected against frost. Here shown after several weeks of freezing temperatures.
