Harvesting the lettuce

There’s nothing better than enjoying the food you grew yourself. Our lettuces have done extremely well this year. What a joy it’s been to pick these beautiful leaves for our dinner.

  1. i love fresh lettuce from the garden too. i’ve planted seeds a few weeks back so I’m ready for my next batch of greenies. hope they keep growing! otherwise, i’ll buy more seedlings. :p

    what kinds of lettuce are they?

      The three varieties that we bought were wildfire mix, red leaf and bibb. All are delicious. Hope your next batch turns out well. As our weather gets warmer, our lettuce season is ending (while yours is beginning!).

  2. I have tried growing lettuce, but something keeps eating it. Your lettuce looks beautiful.

      Jeremy, we grow ours in Earth Boxes that are elevated off the ground. That helps keep the bunnies and other critters from having a feast before we harvest it. And this year we started from seedlings we bought at a greenhouse in March rather than from seed. Clearly that was a good investment!
