Overrun with Lettuce
Rich wanted an aerogarden for Christmas. To be honest, I thought it would be one of those good ideas that didn't really live up to its advertising. He planted some lettuce several weeks ago and look at it now! We can't grow much of anything out here, with the weather really never warming up enough and the soil in our yard being very hard and rocky. We tried to plant flowers in the yard a couple of years ago and couldn't even dig into the ground, so ended up using planter boxes. We can get produce in the store and it is better than you would think after being on the barge for a week, but it is not exactly the freshest. We are proud of our homegrown lettuce and man, is it tasty!
