First Harvest

This year's first harvest from the vegetable garden is the Speckled Trout lettuce.

I am very happy with how well the seeds sprouted and grew.


I harvested enough for my wonderful husband and I to enjoy salads with our supper Friday night.


We both agreed it is a keeper.

  4. I'm slightly envious of your first harvest, but I'm sure it made an absolutely delicious salad and the two of you enjoyed it very much.

  9. That looks wonderful: I've only really been harvesting indoor lettuces so far: I intend to be much more organised next year!

  11. Looks good! We have not any lettuce since spring. Summer too hot from them. Just had seedlings popping out.

  12. My husband of many years (he is gone now) grew a light green lettuce. It was always the first veggie we picked. I would fry bacon and pour the grease over and wilt it and eat it with corn bread. This is a southern meal, I know it was not good for us, it sure tasted good. I broke the bacon in little pieces and put them in also.

  13. I start my thinning when the lettuce is a little smaller than that, and enjoy what I pull out in salad. I wish mine would get as big as yours, though. It seems to be slow growing this year. One of these years, I want to build a cold frame or hoop house.
