Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Harvest Monday - First Real Greens!

I know these two photos look almost exactly alike but they were taken on two different evening this past week when I harvested enough new salad greens (mesclun, speckled romaine and spinach) from the garden for salads enough for three.  Nothing beats the taste of newly picked lettuce in a salad.  Saturday's salad was the main course and featured marinated and sauteed steak over top the greens with lots of other toppings and a dressing of choice.  I chose ranch, Dan chose poppy seed and Sarah chose blue cheese.


Lots of other harvests can be viewed if you head over to Daphne's Dandelions.

Congrats on your first real greens harvests! There is nothing better then some nice fresh lettuce for a salad.

I didn't realize Sarah was home.

Well...at least the lettuce and greens will enjoy this cooler weather. And we did need the rain, but geez its chilly!

Great looking harvest! Our lettuce is coming in, but it's slow moving. I think the rain and cooler weather will help a bunch.

That's a beautiful harvest of greens. I need some sort of basket, I finally figured out, when I finally harvested enough to not be able to simply hold it in my hand!
