First Garden Salad

This is going to be a short post but I just wanted to share with you all that we had our first salad grown from our very own garden.

All I can say is wow. I have been used to prepackaged lettuce from the store and always thought a lettuce is a lettuce is a lettuce.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

I don’t know if it is the mental effect of knowing we grew it ourselves, but I swear it tasted so much better. You can’t get any fresher than walking out to your backyard, harvesting the leaves yourself, and taking them straight into your kitchen to wash and serve. We had 4 different kinds of lettuces mixed together that day and I’m looking forward to a summer of homegrown salads!

    I don’t grow my own stuff, but I get mine from a farmer’s co-op. I’ve gotten mostly lettuce so far, since that’s what’s growing now. It is so delicious. That stuff in the bag is crap, lol.
