so when my mom brought me these veggies, i was a little scared i would kill them but luckily one of our neighbors was getting rid of a wooden trough which i had planned to put more succulents in but then this worked out better! my mom was so nice to plant them for me as i had some business to attend to....then we went away on our honeymoon and i wondered how they were doing and when we came back it was like a tiny little edible jungle had sprouted! i was so excited!!!!!!
|lettuce & chard|
so yesterday i made a mixed green salad with lettuce, spinach & cabbage. I made sure to leave about 2 inches on the lettuce after i cut off what i wanted and only took the bottom leaves of the spinach and cabbage so that more could grow. i am thinking that my chard might need more time to grow so i left him...
it was so awesome to step out our front door and pick lettuce for dinner, the most fresh salad i have ever had! we get a organic box of produce each week which i know is extremely fresh too but this totally trumped the lettuce and spinach we get in that box. i am used to getting our spinach covered in mud but these greens were so clean and almost bug free :)
the salad turned out so yummy...grilled chicken, garbanzo beans, tomatoes & cucumbers topped with monterey jack cheese and oil/vinegar/dijon mustard....oh so yummy!
i am so happy with the results i am going to OSH this weekend to buy another trough and some more greens!!
what grows in your garden??? i would LOVE to hear tips or any advice you guys might have!!!
tomorrow's FRIDAY and me and the mister are going to go to the dia de los muertos exhibit at night!
