I'm still here

I survived Princess' performance week rehearsal schedule!! I have many updates, but will take it one day at a time. I think I have pictures for everything. I should post with consistency for a while.

First, look at the salad produced by my garden. The colors are so rich and diverse. No two lettuce varieties are the same shade. I have tons of salad greens and radishes right now. In a few weeks the lettuce will bolt and Spring crops will be finished, then I will concentrate on beans, peas, corn, melons, and okra.

I will continue to plant lettuce, but the heat of the coming summer will render each planting a short, small-leaved harvest. Jove suggested planting in the shade of the fruit trees. With great hopes I will, because I cannot resist the freshness and color of these wonderful salads.

We have had some success in planting
the lettuce
under our plum trees during the heat of the summer.

Your garden bounty makes me wish I was back in the Magnolia state in my own garden! Keep up the good work, I know your efforts will be rewarded now and in the long term, keep the fire going, the candle lit, and so on and so forth. Thanks for sharing.
