Eating off the balcony

You’ll probably be reading a lot about my little balcony garden this year…hope my passion for plants doesn’t bore you to death! My little lettuce garden is recovering nicely from the deluge. Steven’s letting me use his rotary tool for a while, and I got busy and drilled many many drainage holes in the lettuce box. No more drowned bok choy! I had my first harvests last week: a few (like three or four) leaves to add to a store ingredients salad, just to get my taste buds going, and then….mounds of fresh greens on an Omaha steaks hamburger! And I mean fresh….like picked at 4:30 PM and consumed at 4:45 PM. I just rinsed them off, wrapped them in a paper towel and let them chill in the frig to crisp up a few minutes…and voila!

    Oh yum. And I’ll take you up on the garden offer if you’re interested in coming to help plant, weed, nurture, etc… this summer. In fact, I’ll just say… the garden gate is open. Come as you please. No need to call ahead. Your welcome anytime – whether we’re home or not. Hugs.
