For a spring cutting mix, sow salad greens in a 14-inch or larger pot in a sunny location by the kitchen door. Use fresh potting soil but no fertilizer. After sowing, cover the pot with netting to discourage squirrels. Remove the netting once the greens are growing. Mesclun mixes are ideal for container gardens.
