Green with Envy

We ate OUR OWN greens last night! It was a mix of baby kale, baby chard, and four lettuces. We have to cover our lettuce to protect it and are still losing quite a bit but we haven't lost it all as in the past. We also have a container growing heirloom lettuces that are an inch tall which I will bring back to the house to cut baby greens. It is a lot of work growing your own lettuce with small yields but it really does taste better when you grow your own. Next I will build a raised bed with a built in screened top that we simply lift to harvest. Well, next year maybe.
