My beautiful Fall lettuce is ready to pick for some delicious, crisp salads. There is nothing better than lettuce freshly picked from my garden – it makes all of my salads shine! This is my favorite thing to grow in the fall (besides garlic which I will be planting soon for a late spring/early summer harvest). I can grow so much in these (3) 3×6′ raised beds to keep me, my family and possibly some guests happy. A couple of tomato plants and a pepper plant were grown here during the hot summer months. I do believe in succession planting and try to follow that practice when I can.
I have taken a lot of pretty pictures and one of my favorite salads which I will post soon. See also my post Starting Lettuce From Seed which gives detailed instructions on how I grow my lettuce and this year’s choices from the Ann Arbor Seed Company.
Yes, I am bringing my lettuce crop to Fiesta Friday #38 to make some delicious salads for everyone. I know Angie and probably all of the party goers love salads because you can make them to suit your taste. Please come visit Angie over at The Novice Gardener for some good times and great food and who knows what else! In addition to Angie, our host, I know the two co-hosts Julianna @foodieonboard.com and Hilda @alongthegrapevine.wordpress.com love salads and they all come up with some of the most creative ways to fix them 🙂
