We had a lovely dinner with our super neighbor friends a couple of nights ago. What did we eat?
Some of my homemade chicken in a crock pot on top of lettuce from our garden. Woo Who! Our first garden goodies!
It was a simple meal, but quite tasty and even better because of the excellent company.
My Daddy and I planted a great salad mix from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (which I HIGHLY recommend) on May 2nd and we harvested this first batch of lettuce on May 24th. From seed to my kitchen table that makes 22 days. Sweet!
I cut the lettuce with my kitchen scissors about 3 inches from the ground and then watered them a lot for the next couple of days. My Dad said that I can harvest the lettuce again…probably 3 times. Awesome!
Have you gotten anything from your gardens yet? Tell me all about it…I’d love to know!
Until next time…
