Le Salad

I'm so excited about our lettuce garden. I put these plants in the ground before we had all the rain, ignored them and they are doing fantastic!

Last night, I went out in the dark, holding a flashlight in my mouth so I could see to cut some greens for dinner. The salad was one of the best I've ever had. (of course, the French Roquefort didn't hurt). I am growing spinach (that is not doing very well) romaine, butter?, curly leaf and my favorite - arugula.

We will be adding many raised beds in the spring. I'm so excited to begin this project.

The thyme has been in the garden for a while and is really a nice addition to fish or any meat dish
