babiest lettuce

Today, my employer gave me two baby lettuce pots that she bought at the farmer's market. I've been talking non stop about my silly little lettuce grown from seed that I was just sure would die a terrible buggy death, and I guess she just wanted my original baby lettuce* to have the cheerful company of even littler lettuce plants.

Here they are with a mini wheelbarrow, just the right size for tiny lettuce plants.

*Now that I look back at old posts, I realize that I never posted a photo of my lettuce grown from seed. It's lovely and very healthy. I made a salad out of it and it was extremely tender.

Hey Lynnea - Based on the photo of the lettuce you grew, I'm sure those "let-tie" (is that what you'd call a flock of lettuce?) are in good hands.

Hi Kirk!

so good to have you back! =)

well, thank you. I try to take care of them but they'll have to be fairly strong to withstand my usual abuses to plants =) Let-tie? Lettucese? not entirely sure.

I love Kirk's comment about a flock of lettuce being "Littie" If you still have some of your lettuce grown from seed, the two colors together would make a lovely salad.

Hello mother,

I just harvested all my green lettuce(along with several green worms) and a bit of my red lettuce. they are beautiful together. unfortunately the little worms did eat a fair share of the green lettuce and I suspect I should cut down the red lettuce very soon.
