The salad bed (with spring onions at the other end) started out with red clover and all sorts of other weeds taking over the whole area where we planted our rucola, salads and spring onions. While they were small, it was impossiböe to be weeding it, but a week ago I was able to do a major clean-up. The salads and onions loved that deed, and have been growing quite well since! Except for those gaps in the rows - don't know if it's been snails or birds or what, messin' up our salad bed.
