Learning As We Grow

This week we had our first salad fresh from the garden, and it was ok.

Knowing that we grew it ourselves made it even better. 

It was a bit bitter, and after reading up think the leaves should be picked when they are smaller. 

Apparently, the larger the Romaine leaves are, the more "nutty" {bitter if you ask me} they will taste. Oh Well... that is what this is all about= learning as we GROW right?! ;)

Hate to keep this one short and sweet {or bitter.... lol}, but the weeds are starting to take over the corn and pepper plants!

 Seriously...some kind of vine keeps popping up and within a day is half way up the corn or pepper plants! Those babies are driving me nuts!!! Off to weed the garden I go....before it gets too stinking hot! LOL

More on the weed issue next week. Have a great weekend!  =)

    1. We planted corn, green and banana peppers, tomatoes, watermelon, pumpkin, zucchini, and lettuce. LOL seems like a lot when I type it all out. We have been having fun with it... this is all new to us, so hoping I end up with something to can or freeze for the winter. ;)
