soon, salad

The cold frame is the place for my baby lettuces, and a couple of overwintered spinaches and one big head of lettuce. To keep cats and rabbits and other rascals out of them, we exclude them with a pair of screens made of wire fencing.

This big juicy butter head lettuce that overwintered has been feeding us salad already. Pat told me I can let it flower and seed, because lettuces are open pollinated and the seeds should be true to the parent. I think that's what she told me, I should look it up, too.

And hardening off the basils, peppers, celosias, and some various other herbs.

Betsy, thank you for your message you left on one of my earlier blogs. You have great herbs, they look so fresh and can't probably wait to be planted out. I will come back and watch your herbs grow. I also like the writings of Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky, great, honest men. You have a lovely and interesting blog. thanks Betsy.
