Lettuce Entertain You, Lettuce Make You Smile!

I got a late start on my lettuce planting this year. And then there was the squirrel that took to frolicking in the planter in the seeds! Some strategically placed garlic clips finally slowed him down, mostly.

Finally today we harvested our first lettuce for a salad. We’ll probably be on our second planting by the time the tomatoes start ripening but we’re finally on the way to homemade salad season.
Love my garden!
Tomato plants are coming along nicely.

Today was monthly fertilization day. I try to fertilize everything once a month with a balanced 5-5-5 organic fertilizer, it’s granular so it’s slow release. I’ve been doing it this way for a few years and it seems to work well. 

Back to watching my garden grow.
