There is nothing better than veggies fresh from the garden. Our garden is quite the accidental garden, necessary because of my daughter's AP Biology summer homework. She needed to grow something, anything, and document the process all summer.
Well, we haven't had a garden since the playset went up and I really missed it. I grew herbs, lettuces, tomatoes, and cucumbers. I loved cutting fresh lettuce to make a salad each night, so good. The only problem was the cucumbers and tomatoes all ripened at the same time and I would pass them out to neighbors.
Here's an image of my fresh lettuce that we had for a late lunch today. Tender and fresh, what a great salad.
