Specialty (or gourmet or baby salad) greens are gaining in popularity. They've been a basic part of the European diet for years, but are fast catching on here in the States too.

You can augment your daily diet without a lot of extra effort. As little space as a small plot outside your kitchen window can give you all the tasty salad treats you desire.

At $8.00 per pound wholesale, growing specialty greens is a very viable income opportunity. And it can be done as a home based business.

You can grow a lot in a small area. This is particularly attractive to those who don't have a lot of space or land. For example, it has been estimated that one can earn as much as $60,000 plus on just 1/2 acre!

In some cases, you can grow all year round. This would tend to make your profits much higher. It would also give you tasty salads all year round without having to go out and buy produce of a dubious freshness.

There's plenty of room for you to get in on the action. Though known for some time in Europe, specialty greens are new to the American scene. Like anything new, fast action on your part is the smartest action.

You don't have to be a genius to grow specialty greens. Specialty greens are probably the easiest plants to grow. However, like in any other business, if you want to grow for profit there are the usual ground rules you must follow in order to succeed.

Raising specialty greens can be a rewarding part-time hobby. Besides satisfying your own taste for fine dining, you can sell what's left to one or two discerning chefs.

For pleasure or profit, specialty greens can be a perfect choice for the hobby gardener.

Growing methods are easy to learn. If you don't know already, intensive gardening is one of the two best ways to garden that I know of. The other method is hydroponics. But I started out with intensive organic gardening and still enjoy it. You've heard of the raised bed method - this is intensive gardening at its best. And though you can garden organically with hydroponics, there remain the startup costs which are not as low as the costs incurred with intensive gardening. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages: intensive gardening is a lot more work, especially on setup.

It doesn't cost an arm and a leg to get started. For intensive gardening, all you need is the space and the muscle.
