Harvest Monday ......5/16/2011

It's the same harvest here this week, more letttuce. I only picked two nice heads of the lettuce. I'm trying to hold off picking all of the bigger heads of lettuce as long as I can. The second sowing of lettuce has a while to go before it will be ready. Which reminds me that I should sow some summer lettuce this week.

This is the Italian variety....seeds from in-laws trip to Italy last spring. It is very pretty and good tasting too!
Total Harvest for the week: 8 oz. of lettuce

  10. That is such a gorgeous head of lettuce. Much of my lettuce is getting picked leaf by leaf (except the romaine). I'll have to pick some plants sometime though as I too sowed my next lettuce succession. I'll do another sowing too in a couple more weeks.

  11. That lettuce is SO pretty! I'm pretty much obsessed with red lettuces this year, they definitely add a lot of color to your salads!
