Q. Can I use a seed spreader to plant greens

I always get my greens too thick when planting the seed. Is there a seed spreader that can be used to plant the green seed?

I have a great tip for you!

Visit a cooking store near you and look for empty spice shaker jars. You need a top with larger holes then a salt shaker.
Put your seeds in and shake out onto the soil surface!

Q. Mache

Several years ago, I bought seeds for mache, a French green. I raised some in the fall and liked them a lot. For the past 4 years, I have planted mache seeds in both the spring and the fall and I have never had another mache seed come up. Why? I have been gardening for 40+ years.

I really don't know unless the seeds are not viable. While these can be finicky when it comes to germination, you should still have gotten something. And since you've been gardening this long, I would think the soil and growing conditions for this plant are being met. Very unusual. I wish I could be of more help, but all I can think of would be the seeds or the soil. You may want to try a soil test to see what this turns up.

Q. Harvesting greens

Planted greens – they’re ready harvest. Do I pull from stem or take whole root?

Harvesting of greens can vary between variety, but you can harvest most greens by taking individual leaves, cutting the plant at the soil or pulling the entire plant.
