Spring Veggies

Our lettuces are quite prolific these days. Here is our Oakleaf lettuce, which has done really well here and may be one of my new favorites. The leaves are gorgeous and taste good:

Here is another type in the same bed that is Salad Bowl Red. It hasn't thrived here like some of the others, but is still productive.

Then we have Parris Island Cos, which is a kind of Romaine and does really well here, too:

Our germination with some of the others was poor including Black Seeded Simpson and Buttercrunch, which I think might have given us trouble in other years as well. They might have also just been out competed by those that are more heat tolerant like Oakleaf. I'm curious to see if our favorites remain so if we move to another state with different soils and climate.

And then we have this guy:

Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this Easter Egg radish looks like a butt.


It would make me feel a lot better if I wasn't alone in this, lol.

Anyway, time to go grab myself a nice salad for lunch.

I hope everyone is having a good start to the week!


  1. Ha! It looks like a rear view of a woman in cigarette leg pants standing with her legs crossed backwards.....and yes that does look very much like a butt!

    1. I thought the same! Definitely a butt! :D

    2. Haha, thank you guys for making me feel better! I couldn't think of what the pants were called when I was showing the hubby and he kept pretending he couldn't see it, lol.

  2. LOL!! Everything down the the wrinkles on the pants! I bet you could sell that on Ebay for a ton of money! :)

    1. Lol, then we are in trouble because I totally ate it. :D
