Potted lettuce -its beautiful!
I haven't been able to grow a leaf of lettuce my whole life. It just never works out so you can imagine my surprise when those silly "weeds" that kept popping up in my gravel pathway were.... lettuce! Romaine to be exact. So I let them grow instead of yanking them out.
Malcontents working off their just eaten lettuce lunch.
Wouldn't you know that just when I got a nice big head of lettuce going..... I walked away from the garden without closing the gate....and the geese scooted in and ate it! For heavens sakes. I'm counting on my 'started in pots' lettuce now. I hope I will one day have a salad.
We got more strawberries the other day and I was jammin' all afternoon. I cleaned another 25 pounds of berries in one fell swoop. And yes yes.. there was more pie.
The last of the season - worth the work for sure!
That's the day in pictures - hope that everyone had a great week! Happy Friday!
