Harvest Monday 5/8/17

It feels good to finally harvest from my own garden again.  ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜ป I took a break from gardening last year due to travels.  Believe me, buying my produce all year was a real bummer.  This year I got a late start in the garden.  It's been a really cold and wet winter/early spring here in the Pacific Northwest.  They say the farms are 2-3 weeks behind schedule.  

I'm happy to report that I was finally able to harvest the outer leaves from my lettuce this weekend.  These are the same lettuce that I complained about the aphids attacking.  The aphids are still there.  I'll have to try the soap spray on them.  Believe me when I say I washed this batch of lettuce really really really well.  Triple wash has nothing on me.  I'm happy to report harvesting 0.435 lb of lettuce leaves today.

Happy Harvesting!   


This week's harvest total:
-Lettuce 0.435 lb

Hi there

A little soak in salty water will usually see off aphids I find lol. And caterpillars!

So lovely to be able to pick your own lettuce for salads!
Happy Gardening!

Aphids have been a problem here too, especially on leafy greens. I hope your garden gets going soon!

Hurray for fresh lettuce! We have been very chilly here too so everything is growing slowly, including the lettuce - chances are I won't be harvesting until June.

Margaret: Yes!! Hooray!! We had a warm snap for a few days this week to 80 degrees. Then it was back to 50 and 60. LOL.

I too use salt water to take care of aphids, caterpillar and slugs.
