    mmm, looks good! I picked a huge colander full of lettuce last night also. And I have more that I've started to plant when my current lettuce is done. Starting to get pretty warm here though, so I think I need to find a shade cover to put over mine. One of the varieties I'm planting next is called "Drunken Woman Frizzy Headed Lettuce" - with a name like that, how could I resist! (not that I resemble that name though, you know! lol )

    today I have to harvest my collard greens for the second time this year.! my tomatoes have gone insane have every color of the rainbow growing! pumpkins are forming, corn is wast high,started harvesting potatoes, should have enough to last till next summer at the rate they are growing, same for the onions and broccoli. Each year it seems my garden gets bigger and better each year I am amazed at how much food I get and can preserve out of the garden. I am in awe over what nature gives me and continue to try to work with her and appreciate the bounty she gives.

    Sweet! It always good to be rewarded for our hard work. I'm still amazed after 4 years that I can do this. I learn so much and it's new and amazing every year. I hope I get better at it so that I can start preserving stuff. Right now there's just enough to eat and share with the family. I dream of canning my own pickles, salsa, and tomato sauce. :)
