Fresh As Can Be

My broadcast salad bed is really taking off. This pic is from last week and now with the rains it has doubled in size. You can see there are several different types of leaf lettuce plus spinach.

Every night we go out and cut from the top all the salad we can eat. Sprinkled with a little cheese, bacon bits and dress with 1000 Island and that right there my friends is some fantastic eating.


  1. Looks like you have a raised bed garden there, I like those, they seem easier to keep up. Very nice.

  2. Yes Duke it is easier to keep. I have five 4'X16' raised beds and want three more.
    This coming spring I also plan to put in a regular garden so I can plant more corn and sunflowers.

  3. That is so great! I am glad you got some produce happening.

  4. Rain sure makes a difference doesn't it. The bathroom is coming along nicely. What wrong with the car?

  5. your salad bed is beautiful! we are planning on taking one of our raised beds and covering it with 10ml plastic to make a hoop-house of it in the hopes that we can enjoy some fresh salads for the rest of the fall and early winter.

    we hope it works otherwise we'll be coming to your house for daily salads!

    your friend,

  6. G - Finally! is all I can say about it.

    Stephen - The car has a blown head gasket, intake gasket, water pump is out and idler puller is falling off.

    Kymber - It sounds like it would work and y'all are welcome anytime.
