The caterpillars and ants may be attacking in a destructive sort of way as I type, so I need to revel in my past 3 nights' salads' glories quickly :) I'm not sure what to do about the roly polys either... Oh, bugs! So forgive my bragging, but I'm sure my success won't last too long!
April 8th- Still small, but showing signs of growth...
April 14th- Definitely growing, awesome baby lettuce! This is when I realized I totally planted the potato plants too close together. Oops! We'll see what happens.
April 22nd- Now I think the bed is too small! The potato plants are taking over! The lettuce is looking good here, though. And, if you can believe it, I think everything has doubled since this last picture was taken!
This is one of my hanging baskets with ferns and lobelia--looking good! It's amazing how 2 baskets can really brighten up the front of the house.
My salad, with chickpeas, sunflower seeds and craisins, and the lettuce is fresh from the garden !
