Planting (broadcasting?) lettuce seeds thickly
I transplanted my kale and spinach in rows following spacing on packets, and sowed seed for Tom Thumb lettuce, tatsoi, maruba santoh, and mustard in rows. But I'm wondering if I can broadcast my mesclun mix, arugula, BS Simpson, etc. thickly over a 2-3 ft wide row, maybe not a whole row, but a square block, if I want to make it easy to cut for baby greens? Would also save time planting, and wouldn't need mulch?
It's supposed to T-storm each day this week and could get heavy at times so I covered my carrot rows with burlap - could do the same with these blocks of lettuce/greens?
Has anybody tried this?
