CORN SALAD (Valerianella olitoria)

This is a salad crop not much grown, but it makes a useful substitute for Lettuce and Endive when these are unobtainable. Seed should be sown in September in well-manured, deeply-dug soil, raked to a fine tilth. Sow in drills 8 in. apart. Thin seedlings out as soon as possible to about 4 or 5 in. apart. Plenty of water is required, and the hoe should be used to keep the rows free from weeds. Leaves are usually available for the salad bowl all through the winter and early spring.
