Harvest Monday, June 13, 2011

Lots of lettuce this past week! I was packing gallon bags of it and giving some to family & friends. This lettuce was from seed we ordered from Baker's Creek; and we can't complain. It's been great.

This photo is of what must have been a seed that strayed from the lettuce bed and germinated in the lawn!




This was just one harvesting; it looked so nice arranged in the colander ;)


And another harvest picture.

And this is my handy Basil harvest holder...the cup holder on the Babe's stroller :) We just recently got the Basil in the garden, but it already had some leaves that needed plucked.



For what I remembered to weigh from our 'greens' harvest for the week, we had:


  • .63 ounces of Basil

  • 1.753# of lettuce

Check out what other Gardner's are harvesting this week over at Daphne's Dandelions Harvest Monday!

That really is a pretty display of the lettuces. I think lettuce is such a pretty plant with all its variations of colors and textures. I tend to grow blends as a result so I can see all that variety both in the garden and in my salad bowl.

Enjoy those salads!

That is a LOT of salad! I think I'd let that lettuce grow in my lawn, it looks so pretty! I just love seeing different colors of lettuce! I like the pot you used for the second lettuce picture :)
