Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

My Winter Garden - Part Six


This is one of my most attractive garden beds, planted in a transportable planting bag. It's called Mesclun. The name comes from Provençal (Southern France) — mescla, "to mix"— and literally means "mixture".

my Mesclun:

Mesclun is thus a salad mix of assorted small, young salad leaves. The traditional mix includes chervil, arugula, leafy lettuces and endive in equal proportions, but modern versions may include a mix of lettuces, spinach, arugula (rocket, or roquette), Swiss chard (silver beet), mustard greens, endive, dandelion, frisée, mizuna, mâche (Lamb's Lettuce), radicchio, sorrel, and/or other leaf vegetables.

This planting contains tatsoi, rocket, mizuna, radicchio, cos lettuce and a couple other lettuces I can't identify. I regularly plant pots and bags with mesclun seeds in broadcast style, and I just wait and see what pops up. I have leaves available almost all year round. When life gets intense, I just come out into the warm noonday sun and feast my eyes on nature's beauty. So wonderfully therapeutic!
