One more reason to love our greenhouse... Homegrown salad in Winter! (Although, so far, this winter has been mild enough a greenhouse really hasn't been necessary.)
Delicious cool season veggies were gathered again this week. Lettuce was a special treat! This is the first lettuce harvested since late Spring. The seeds were free from Songbird Garden's Class . I planted them the weekend before Halloween. The carrots continue to do well.
A few small scallions were pulled from our garden to complete this lovely salad!
Mmmm... Tasty and nutricious! Did I mention I love our greenhouse? ;-) -Marci
Oh that salad looks amazing!!! Happy Green Housing!ReplyDelete
And who wouldn't love fresh greens after looking at the sad supermarket ones!! I want a greenhouse!ReplyDelete
Cool! I put in a low row, and I'm hoping to grow all winter. We shall see how it goes with this cold spurt this week. I'd love to have some cabbage and greens over winter. I just harvested a bunch of carrots yesterday. It's still exciting :) Right now I'm just hoping for a wet winter to recover from this year. Did you know we are still almost 18" short on rainfall for the year?ReplyDelete
I've always wanted a greenhouse!ReplyDelete

Love the little carrots. I have serious carrot issues. They grow gorgeous tops but funky bottoms. The horses love them. I have tried different soils to but they come out the same way! I also have a greenhouse and LOVE getting things in a New England weather that I'm "not supposed to be able to" because it's so cold! I have a small space heater that only comes on when it's super cold, so I can't grow too much, but the greens and beets and broccoli and carrots are pretty happy! I can't grow spinach to save my life and that is a very serious disappointment. I've tried so many varities and places to grow it and I get NOTHING!!ReplyDelete
Those little short fat carrots are too cuteReplyDelete
Marci, so simple, so good. Thanks for linking up with Food on Friday. CheersReplyDelete
