2011's First Harvest

Let there be lettuce...and salad.

In between the rain storms this week I harvested some of my Salad Bowl lettuce (11.4 oz). The leaves were definitely getting out of control, and I wanted to make sure I did not let them go too long, where they developed a bitter taste.



I love the fact that I have already had my first harvest, as it was about two weeks before last year. However, I still have quite a few weeks before I will be able to harvest anything but lettuce. My Boston Lettuce is doing quite well, and I expect to harvest some of that soon, but I anticipate the next veggie to harvest to be...sugar snap peas!

Your lettuce looks great! Sounds like we are about in the same boat as you with our harvests and planting.

Oh, that lettuce does look lovely. And sugar snap peas sound divine right now!

I'm anticipating my snap pea harvest too. I can't wait. I was out looking at the plants today. No sign of flowers yet. They are still growing up their trellis.
