Harvested about the last 1/3 of our lettuce
On Monday, I harvested about the last 1/3 of our lettuce, arranging shipments primarily via request from family and friends. During harvest week, my diet typically consists of a bowl of Harvest Moon lettuce covered in balsamic and salt. When others get a taste of the unique texture and flavor, as well, they, too, want their own supply. It shocks me how many people, in particular request kale, considering the low street credit it typically receives from the supermarket. I presume it’s the unique look of the Black Magic Kale that catches their attention, or maybe there’s just a weird underground community of kale lovers. Either way, demands are high, and supply is low. Therefore on Thursday, I planted the new exotic seeds we had just ordered the previous Sunday. They consist of half a tray of Red Russian Kale and half a tray of Winterbor Kale; though I have no idea what either of these looks or tastes like, I’ll find out in sixty days.
