Lettuce for a New Year
The New Year is always a time for reflection and resolutions fro self improvement and so forth. There is an old German proverber that whatever you spend your day on the First is what you’ll spend your year doing. So I spent the day refreshing/practicing riding a motorcycle–all on very soft ground, weed-eating the fence row, quilting a bit on a project started by my mother, and now I’m going to work on finishing up a project or two I started last year.
Last week we planted lettuce in my raised bed garden and today the letttuce is beginning to sprout. In about four weeks, we’ll have more lettuce than we can eat in a day. There’s just something about fresh produce picked that day from your own garden.
