Leafy Harvest

The lettuce table has produced enough greens to create a salad bowl for three! Well our three, which actually means second servings. A little spinach, mesclun and leaf lettuce, all very tender and flavorful. I added some store bought tomatoes, mini cucumbers, mushrooms and feta making a lovely light meal.

This year I covered the lettuce table with the remains of a broken matchstick blind attached with pipe cleaners onto halved steel wreath rings. A good reuse of leftover household junk. Anyway, it has worked wonders keeping the lettuces from bolting, even with our week of 90+F heat. As I have said before, gardening is an ongoing experiment and over time you figure out solutions to previous season's failures.
