Harvest Monday: Lettuce

Last weeks’ harvest consisted of this gorgeous lettuce, a mix of butterhead and red sails, and all my overwintered carrots.  The carrots were nothing special, but the lettuce was fabulous.  In all, I picked 19 oz. of lettuce and 6 oz. of carrots.  I gave Dan’s mom a big head of red sails and we enjoyed the rest in salads, and there will be more to come this week. Unfortunately I neglected to snap a photo of the carrots, but they were not that pretty, unlike that gorgeous lettuce.

My big lettuce and carrot harvest this week gives me a total of 4.71 lbs this year at a total value of $12.62.  My garden expenses to date are $322.12 after a trip to Johnny’s for more seeds, which leaves me in the red for gardening with a seasonal net of $-309.50.

We’ve got a stretch of cool rainy weather going, which should be great for the lettuce and Asian greens in the garden, so with luck I’ll be able to add a stir fry to my harvest meals in the next week.

    What beautiful lettuce! At least this cool spring is good for something.

  3. Robin Says:

    It seems like the spring lettuce is always the best. We are also supposed to have rain nearly every day for the next 8 days.

    We too are getting nothing but rain every day. At least you have some great lettuce to show for it!
