What's For Lunch?
We picked pretty much all the lettuce we finally grew in pots...in order to foil the sparrows who kept eating our lettuce sprouts. We were heading into 3 or 4 days of triple digit heat and decided to play it safe and enjoy the lettuce while it was still yummy and sweet. While we were picking we picked most of the remaining peas, thinking that the heat wasn't going to do them any good either. That was a good choice since the plants looked fried by the third day of 100+ heat and they have now been replaced with sweet Italian peppers. So we had make-your-own salad for lunch last Thursday, with peas on the side. It might be surprising to see how much lettuce a preschooler can eat when she just picked it herself!
