The Garden...

provided the basis for last night's dinner. Harvested huge amounts of lovely Red Sails lettuce. Made our favorite salad with grape tomatoes (not ours quite yet), raisins, dried cranberries, and teriyaki grilled chicken. Really good!

We carefully harvested the lettuce leave so the plants are still viable and have reseeded around in the bed with a mixture of Black Seeded Simpson, Red Sails, and Butter Crunch lettuces for variety.

Three more beds to prep. Tomatoes, peppers, white and culinary sage, lavender and white swan echinecea to move outside. Potatoes go into the pots today. We will plant more spinach, yellow onions (first planting is up!), cucumbers, carrots in pots (our soil is very rocky-so much so that I'm using the rocks from the beds to make borders and a path!). Oregano and lavender to harvest and dry for winter.

Raspberries, strawberries and blueberries are blooming. First year for all three so may not get more than a snack.

This is a great book! I have the stained and tattered original.
