I've been enjoying using my fresh herbs basically since I planted them, but a few days ago I was able enjoy the first real harvest from my garden! The lettuce had grown so much in the last few weeks and it was time to pick some of the bigger leaves.
I only picked leaves from the four lettuce plants in the container garden, and I ended up with the equivalent to a small head of lettuce.
All cut up for a salad.
We had gardens growing up, but I don't remember ever tasting home grown lettuce. My lettuce was so incredibly soft, it just sorta melted in your mouth like butter. It was delicious and I can't wait to use even more.
