A Bumper Crop of Lettuce

I think I may have over planted lettuce this year…we barely had enough for 2 to 3 salads last year. So…..I put in 3 times as many seedlings this year, plus threw some old lettuce seeds in the city picker, and ended up with way too much!

See…

This is what it looked like before picking:

And after being picked clean:

I already cleaned out the square planter and replanted with green beans, as much of the lettuce was starting to bolt. But the deck planters are already filling back out after all the rain we’ve had these past few days.

Peppers and tomatoes are looking good too! First pepper and tomatoes of the season made their grand debut this past week…

Oh, did I tell you I’m also growing my own sprouts? It’s so easy! More on this later…

Have a good week!

Love,
