The spinach had slowed down in growth; I am hoping the cooler temperatures this week change its mind. I am still thinning the over-planted lettuce so I will be harvesting lettuce from my February sowing for another 3-4 weeks. (Thinning is why I picked so much — to make room!). I hope by then the successive sowings I’ve made will be coming ready. Dan washed the lettuce and spinach while I finished dividing some perennials to share. There was so much lettuce he laid it on a bath towel to dry off before packaging up for the week.
For dinner Sunday we enjoyed a delicious salad made with some simple grilled chicken, locally grown (albeit not that flavorful) hothouse tomatoes, green onions, parmesan cheese, walnuts and homemade Caesar dressing. I was seriously considering licking the bowl at the end.
