The Salad Season Has Officially Begun

Although in the past couple of weeks I admit to cutting a leaf of lettuce or two for sandwiches and having gathered enough baby spinach leaves for two Orange-Red Onion-Spinach salads, yesterday was the first time I harvested a good quantity of . . . 


Lettuce!

Ready for a salad with fresh baked einkorn rolls.  Mmmm, good.


I also brought in some assorted salad greens to mix with the lettuce.


And a bunch of spinach.

For the next few months (too few, I'm sad to say), we'll have a big bowl of some combination of these garden greens almost every day.

If for some reason, I had only one small area in which to garden (terrible though that would be), it would be filled with crispy, crunchy salad greens chock full of nutritious goodness.

Beautiful! 😊

Mama Pea said...

Goatldi - I'm continually amazed at how attractive salad greens can be. (Maybe I'm easily amazed.)

Granny Sue said...

How pretty! And so delicious. We're on our second planting now, and I hope to plant again soon to keep a fairly continuous supply.

Mama Pea said...

Granny Sue - Yes, my second planting is up and ready to be thinned!

Leigh said...

Our salad greens have pretty much died back from the heat. Makes yours look all the more lovely!

Mama Pea said...

Leigh - I often think of you having lovely salad greens way before we do! But ours, I'm thinking, last longer into the season . . . unless we get sustained hot weather which isn't usual. You know we love our radishes which usually succumb to even the warm weather we get too early. This year I'm making a (third) succession planting in the raised bed that has the wire hoop trellis over it on which I'm trying to get Scarlet Runner Beans to climb . . . and maybe provide a cooling shade for the radishes. Another gardening experiment! Will they ever end???

We have been eating a lot of salads, too, although not from our own fresh grown supply. Lucky you!
I hope you have a blessed Sunday. xo Diana

NanaDiana - Do you have a Farmer's Market close by where you can purchase fresh produce? They say that the food grown right in your own locality is able to provide the very best nutrition for your own body. Make sense? Don't know for sure, but can't hurt! :o}
