[Market-farming] edge of bed grows better

Does anyone know why the mesclun on the edge of the beds grows 10 times
faster/better than the rest? They are 3 ft wide beds in a hoop house. Fairly
even moisture and fertilizer. But the plants on the outside of the beds
always grow better. The only thing I can think of is that the edges
naturally get compressed a bit more and the centers stay fluffier. This soil
is sandy clay/loam.

 

Thanks in advance,

Wendy
