I have a harvest for Harvest Monday again! The Aerogarden was needing a trim, and my hubby expressed interest in a salad from the balcony, so he got one.
We harvested a few leaves from the plant in the front left a few days ago. This is actually Red Sails, though you certainly can't tell that from the picture. It is still growing like crazy though! The plant in the front middle is the Tristar strawberry plant. It's doing really well, and much better than the ones planted outside so far.
Overwintered lettuce and spinach pre-harvest. The weather forecast this week gave me enough reassurance that these plants will bounce right back even with a heavy harvest.
Fresh, crisp lettuce for some delicious salads!
Side note: I understand why lettuce can be so expensive when I remember, and experience, how laborious the process of cleaning each individual leaf can be. It was still the best tasting salad we've had in a long time though!
To see what others are harvesting, head over to Daphne's Dandelions, and check in on others and their Harvest Mondays!
