Salad Days, Here Again

Here are the latest picks--after an arugula pesto last week and a spinach salad, we're getting flush again with arugula (the overwintered stuff is bolting), and the mesclun is taking off on its own (from last year's dropped seed). I'm leaving the straw piled high because we have cool nights ahead (not that the greens seem to mind, but there are fragile seedlings below) and it is just so nice to not have to contend with the greenhouse covers anymore.
This bed seems problem free, so I'm not rotating yet--I'll stick with the spinach-arugula-mesclun combo through spring, adding a pea trellis over the top. (Peas are planted around the periphery)
Last summer and fall, this bed held okra, eggplant, peppers, and beans, so this might be a good bed for squash--a dinky do first!
