I don't know what magical thing happened in the garden recently, but most of the Romaine went CRAZY last week. We had pulled off outer leaves a few times to make a couple small salads, but we were a little hesitant to take too much. When we went in the garden over this past weekend, we noticed at least 4 of the lettuce plants have actually formed their little heads! You don't want the lettuce to actually go to seed, so we figure we've only got a few weeks to eat it all. So, we harvested one up! And don't be too surprised if we offer you some at some point. ;-)
Look how pretty! And BIG!
Wash, wash, wash your lettuce gently in the sink...Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, eat with a radish, pink... (sorry)
Spin it, Hubby! Salad Spinners are a great way to de-stress.
We also had our first radish harvest...
Combine the romaine, the radish, some baby spinach from the garden and some store-bought matchstick carrots (I apparently suck at growing carrots - no luck so far), and I've had salad for lunch this week!
Ahh! The fruits (ok...veg!) of my labor!
