Going Green

Romaine Lettuce (No pesticides were used.)
Well, I am super thrilled to harvest more veggies from my very first garden.  This time, I clipped some Romaine Lettuce.  I read online that you can continuously harvest lettuce if you only clip the outer leaves and leave the center alone.  According to various Internet sources, the center will continue to grow and expand outwards.  I will post an update on how well this works.  I used the lettuce for a side salad at dinner and it was delicious.  I have never had lettuce this fresh before and you can't ignore the amazing crispness.

In more harvest news, I have pulled some more radishes.  The one pictured above was huge.  John put the apple next to it for comparison of size.  The cutting board in the picture is another talent of hubby's.  A couple of years ago he made several cutting boards.  This is one of my favorites.  It is made from maple, yellow heart, and walnut wood.
