Salad Table

from University of Maryland’s Home and Garden Information Center (“We answer plant and insect questions!”):

A New Type of Container Garden

“Some Maryland gardeners complain of having insufficient sunlight in their landscapes for a vegetable garden. Many others don’t have the time, space, or knowledge to grow fresh vegetables. Jon Traunfeld, Regional Specialist with Maryland Cooperative Extension has been developing a unique method of growing salad and trialed it last year at the Central Maryland Research and Education Center in Clarksville, MD.

“The Salad Table enables you to produce salad greens outdoors, at waist level, from April through October. It is portable, versatile, low-cost, and terrific for gardeners of all ages, sizes, and abilities. The Salad Table is essentially a shallow wooden frame with a large surface area and a mesh bottom that allows water to drain. You can attach legs of any length you desire or set it on sawhorses or other supports. Smaller versions are especially good for kids and small spaces. The Salad Table can be placed in a cool, low sunlight location for growing tender baby greens, including all types of lettuce, through the hottest summer months!
