Salad crops are up & growing

One of the many rows of lettuce growing here at Wishful Acres.  Planted by yours truly the last week of March and will be ready to harvest for sale in our wonderful baby greens salad blend in a few weeks!  Pictured here is a red romaine.  I don't know about you, but I can't wait to eat decent lettuce again!  The supermarket stuff pales in comparison, and it's been a long winter of eating it.

  (I don't know if it's just that the stuff in the supermarket is not as good because it's at least 1-3 weeks old??   Or is it the varieties they grow?  I'm betting on the freshness factor, because I grow many of the same varieties I see in the organic blends sold at the grocery store...)

Thanks for visiting Wishful Acres Farm blog!

  1. I'm with you Penny. The stuff is the store is disgusting. Plus, we like different colors and varieties - hard to find and worse yet, often limpy. We've been eating forellenschluss, mache and sorrel in salads for several weeks from our cold frame. Next year you'll probably have greens almost all year long - (you put up a hoop, right?)
