Harvest Monday: April 4, 2016


This post is my submission Harvest Monday hosted weekly by Our Happy Acres.  And it is a real harvest this week, as little as it may be!

This is a lettuce blend but at this early stage it's hard to tell.  Doesn't matter, it was so nice to have my own fresh greens!  I gave the entire batch a haircut so I won't have anymore any time soon, but it was totally worth it for a small salad of baby greens.

Once the weather warms up a bit, I'll transplant it straight from this pot into the garden bed inside my greenhouse.  Hopefully next weekend as we are going through another cold snap here with a high temperature below zero on Sunday and most nights (and some days) this week similarly in the freezing range.

I'm looking forward to seeing how others are progressing with their seedlings and more advanced crops in other locations through the Harvest Monday links.

  2. So cold, in April! But the end is surely in sight. I imagine that first taste of homegrown lettuce is the best.

    1. I believe the end when I see it :) but maybe a week from now should be OK!

    1. Miraculously, I did not get the last snow dump that you did ... fingers crossed for both of us.

  5. I haven't even started my lettuce seeds yet, but I do have some trimmings from the onion starts. Any day now it will be spring and we can get on with gardening.

  6. Bet that was the best tasting salad. I am hoping to a lettuce harvest in a week or 2.

    1. It was amazing. The first salad of the year is always the best!

  7. Homegrown lettuce, salad leaves are so much more superior than anything you can buy at the supermarkets or even the grocers. Yum.
