Mrs. Pickles mentioned she might become Mrs. Lettuce. My dear Mrs. Pickles, I cannot let that happen. Last year I was Mrs. Tomato, but I've had to give that up in 2011, so the title of Mrs. Lettuce must be mine. Really, it must. Today I picked 24 ounces of lettuce from my garden, which brings my total so far in 2011 to....
Exactly fifty pounds. Yes, fifty (50) pounds of luscious lettuce. And there's much, much more where that came from! My rabbit loves me. Well, I love me too, as the container on the right is for our consumption. We get the crispy young center leaves, Cookie gets the bigger, outer leaves, and the compost pile gets a tiny handful that wasn't quite fit for consumption. Compost lettuce is not added to the weight total.
The garden looked so lovely last night, in the pink glow of the sunset. I wish the photo showed it better. You'll just have to trust me.
