Salad harvest

Last night I really wanted a salad to go with dinner so I went out to the garden and picked some of our lettuces.

I can’t tell you how much fun it was to go “shopping” in the garden.

Despite the convenience factor of bagged salads, I don’t buy them anymore because they just have this taste that says … not really fresh at all.

There is one downside to picking your own greens – you have to look out for stowaways like these little pods that have been dropping off our tree into the garden.

I remember last year I found some baby slugs in with the greens!

But it’s worth it.

And have I mentioned how much I love my salad spinner?

If you have a little extra aggression to get out, just spin that puppy until you feel better. Then eat salad.
