View from the office...

          Today's view is one of the lettuce beds. We have an abundance of lettuce, spinach, green onions and radishes right now. Tim built me two raised beds last year right by the kitchen and we have them filled with greens. It's so handy to have them close by and be able to run out the back door and grab a handful of whatever I need. The spinach is trying to bolt, so I cut them back and will give the tops to the bunnies. I have found with the Black Seeded Simpson lettuce, if I cut it, rather than pull it, it will give us fresh lettuce all summer long. I plant the onions a little at a time, so we always have fresh green onions all summer too. I just picked a huge bunch of green and red lettuce...how about taco salad for supper?
