Looks like the gardening day I have been waiting for, has actually arrived. As winter quickly turned to summer in South Florida, the lettuce I planted is ready to be eaten or burn up! I will be pulling carrots, picking tomatoes and peppers, and pulling up a few heads of lettuce for tonight’s VFT salad! With some basil and other assorted herbs, and even a strawberry or 2, it will be our first, completely homegrown Thursday night salad.
This morning’s blog is just a test. Writing from my iPad, I am trying to figure out how to add my own photos. If all goes well, a picture of my lettuce garden should show up. If you look hard you can even spot the strawberry…
For the rest of the menu, you’ll have to show up for dinner. We gather at 8 and we always welcome mystery guests!
OK it worked! Your photo has inspired me to start a container garden (that’s all I have room for)…
I may begin gathering the necessary containers, soil, plants, etc…. this weekend!
That photo is BEAUTIFUL Bon!!! Congratulations! Pop would be proud of you!!
WOW!! I am so excited for you. How awesome is it to eat your own homegrown veggies???!!! I LOVE the photo. Everything looks so “happy” and healthy. Tonight will be an extra special family night for all of you! Enjoy the people and your unbelievable harvest!
