Fresh from the Garden

I began growing lettuce last summer in a wooden wine crate lined with newspaper and a good potting soil. Of course I planted way too much and was giving away bags of it to the post lady and other friends and perfect strangers walking dogs past the house, and by mid July couldn't look another salad in the face. There is now arugula growing in the wine crate (just two plants) and my lettuce crop, newly rotated is much smaller this season. There's something wonderful about stepping out the back door, colander in hand and picking your own lettuce for salads and sandwiches. And other than for photo ops, it's kept way up high and out of the bunnies reach.
