Yesterday, I harvested some Romaine lettuce that I planted back in late spring. I am very much a newbie to gardening but after much debate I decided to give it a go this year. Honestly I didn’t have to do as much work as I expected.
My garden bed is an old bookshelf filled with part-composted dirt and store-bought garden soil. I planted the “already started plants” from Home Depot….and watered when it wasn’t raining. No more than two small weeds grew, so for a first garden, it was pretty stress-free.
We ate the lettuce in a salad last night for dinner. It was pretty cool to go pick the lettuce and be eating it from my plate less than an hour later. Overall it tasted great …. One bunch was picked later than it should have been, so it was on the bitter side, but still tasty.. Already planning for Fall planting now 😀
