Collect for the Feast of St. Mark

O God, who raised up Saint Mark, your Evangelist, and endowed him with the grace to preach the Gospel, grant, we pray, that we may so profit from his teaching as to follow faithfully in the footsteps of Christ. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.

RITA HEIKENFELD’S TIPS FOR A COLANDER SALAD GARDEN

Find inexpensive colanders at thrift or dollar stores.

As far as what to grow, choices are endless! You can plant a single variety of greens or a mix. Let the little ones help you choose. 

STEPS:

1.  Line a colander with coffee filters to keep soil in and allow good drainage. 
2. Tape coffee filters if necessary to adhere to colander. Moisten evenly.
3. Pour soil in 3/4 of the way up. Tamp down to smooth.
4. Sprinkle seeds evenly over surface. You can sprinkle on a good amount of seeds.
5. Pour a tiny bit of soil on top of seeds, just enough to cover.
6. Tamp down gently.
7. Water very lightly and gently. This is where a spritz bottle comes in handy.
8. Add label and date. You can simply tape the seed packet on a popsicle stick.
9. Place in sunny spot.
10. Water as needed. Keep evenly moist but not soggy.
11. Watch closely — in a week or so you’ll see all those tiny seeds sprouting.
12. Some varieties are ready to eat in 3 weeks.
13. As the greens grow, cut at soil level. New growth appears in a few days.
