The lettuce row is growing
This is my first year planting lettuce and I'm so excited about the potential results! We have some Oak Leaf, Arugula, and other salad greens (not specifically listed on the six-pack tag) growing in a little row with carrot seeds planted in between everything. I planted the starts on March 21st and the second picture was taken on April 8th. I think I'll harvest today for a lunch salad...yum! I'm hoping the weather stays a little on the cool/overcast side for a few more weeks so that I can harvest again before things heat up and the lettuce bolts.
I am a mom and gardener in Southern California who loves to plant new things to grow and eat. My family loves to play and eat off the vine in the garden so we are totally organic. We really enjoy the beauty given to us from God!
