I decided to try to plant some lettuce in my garden! Why not? We have been eating salad a lot lately, so I thought it would be pretty cool to actually grow a salad in my garden. As it turns out, it appears to be working!
The lettuce is actually growing! I have been visiting it daily to see how it’s doing, and much to my surprise, it’s a success. I’m quite happy with this little adventure.
Right now, the plants are a little small, but hopefully in a few more days there will be enough to harvest a little salad for me and my husband to share.
It’s a little surreal to me to grow things that I can actually eat! I guess I’m just a city girl through and through. I lived in farm country as a child, and food from the farm was more common than food from the grocery store, but that was a long time a go, and Trader Joe’s has since become my “farm” of choice these days.
If this works out as well as I hope it will, I just might be spending a little less money at Trader Joe’s!
