salad time


It has been a couple of weeks since I have had a garden update on our small patio garden. The lettuce greens are now almost ready to pick for salads... well, perhaps just one salad for now until the rest of it gets bigger. I was so excited about how easily it grew I planted another big box of it... so in a few more weeks we should have enough for "salads" plural. Also planted some dill seeds, and it seems to be doing well... (it looks a bit flat in the pic, since I just watered it). Oh.. and sadly, the pumpkin plant we grew from seed and then transplanted to mom's real garden has died... I didn't take a picture, since it looked like a sad shriveled vine. Not sure what went wrong, but I have planted new pumpkin seeds... so hopefully it will work this time!

You are way ahead of me. I can't seem to get veggies in the ground this year. Don't know what's wrong with me!

Wonderful! Fresh edibles taste completely different than stuff you can buy at the grocery store. Enjoy your salads!

Lettuce greens, what a great idea! I have an overflowing herb garden, but I never thought to plant a salad. :)

Oh man, I so wish I didn't live in an apt. I had a basil plant once, and it was HUGE, but never anything more than that!
