This box is about 8" deep and contains a tiny bit each of red-veined sorrel, scallions, watercress, miner's lettuce, arugula, and mache. I sowed the seeds directly into the box quite close together. When you want to munch, you can pick leaf by leaf or cut the whole plants about 1/2" above the soil. Some will grow back in a few weeks for a second cutting or you can plant new seeds of quick growing greens like arugula and cress when you harvest them. It might only make for a few salads but they will be fresh and tasty any time of year.
