grow your own salad


I must admit I find it just as much fun now as I did when I was child to literally grow my own salad! My tomatoes are finally starting to come in properly. I had an issue with blossom end rot earlier in the season but corrected it with Epsom Salts. Some of the tomatoes pictured below have been turned into a delightful summer salad with cucumber, onion, fresh basil, and a simple vinaigrette.

The lettuce I bought in started packs a couple of weeks ago when my friend Sara and I made our last journey up to Black Creek Greenhouses in East Earl, PA. I plant my lettuce in pots and it’s a combination of arugula and romaine.

Thanks for stopping by!
