Ok, not the most artful photograph. But this is my latest gardening adventure. The lettuce patch. Now according to the mounds of research I have done, lettuce is supposed to be the easiest thing to grow. Well, this is my third attempt in as many years. All past attempts have been epic failures. So, I'm not quite sure how easy it really is to grow lettuce. I'm trying out a different spot in the garden this year and also some wildlife and domestic dog deterrent, as you can see below.
My two youngest garden gnomes helped dig and plant the rows. It really was a fun project so I hope we are able to harvest a little salad. We planted Monet's Garden Mesclun mix. Chosen only for it's name and pretty package. As you can tell we run a purely scientific garden here. Hopefully we will see some sprouts within the next couple of weeks.
