Salad Table

We are seeing lovely little seedlings in our salad table. We were inspired to make this after catching a Martha Stewart episode one morning late in March. We only had to buy the screen material,  seeds, and soil. It went together in less than an hour. The trellises are only to keep the cats from jumping up on it.  Luckily it was covered when a recent major hail storm passed in the middle of the night. I think it would have suffered some serious wash out had it not been protected. It gets sprayed about twice a day now or when it seems dry from the strong winds lately. I love that it is high off the ground and I can easily study the progress.  I could live on salads and there is nothing better than fresh clean organic greens you can pick right in your yard. 
So far — so good. Everything seems to be doing well and the micro greens are just about ready to cut.
