We harvested our first crop of lettuce this past weekend (only about a quarter of what is growing) and it was so delicious. We had a fantastic salad all from our garden of lettuce, peas, and green beans. And yes, the kids ate it too. With ranch dressing. But still they ate it.
I could become seriously addicted to gardening (in a really good way, I swear!).
Also, not related to our garden but connected in my mind because it is growing outside, I saw the Blue Bead Lilly's, whose flower picture I posted in the spring, fruit which is blue, surprise, surprise. Next day? Gone. These woods sure are full of busy little critters.
ps pictures of the butterflies' progress coming soon (and I promise they are good!).
