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, raked to a fine tilth. Sow in drills 8 in. apart. Thin 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 . Leaves are usually available for the salad bowl all through the winter and early spring.
