Easy Care for Abundant Greens

Choose a sunny to partially shaded location for planting, depending on the specific requirements of each type of green. For greens like arugula, lettuce, and spinach, which prefer cooler temperatures, planting in early spring or late summer is ideal in Ohio. Ensure proper spacing between seedlings to allow for optimal growth and airflow.
Arugula, lettuce, and spinach should be spaced about 6 to 8 inches apart.
Kale, collards, and Swiss chard need about 12 to 18 inches between plants.

Greens do best with regular watering to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, particularly during dry spells. Mulch can help retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature. Monitor for pests such as aphids, cabbage worms, or leaf miners, which can be managed through early detection and organic control methods such as handpicking or applying insecticidal soap. Fertilize the plants with a balanced organic fertilizer every few weeks to promote healthy growth and robust foliage. Harvest greens as needed by snipping off individual leaves or cutting them near the base of the plant, ensuring to leave at least 1/3 of the foliage for continued growth.
