Yesterday, the kids were all out after school and I joined them on my bike for a while. Interesting how you see things differently when you’re a bit higher and not doing the activity with a particular objective in mind.
One such observation was the raised bed in the corner of a garden opposite my own. Of course, I’ve seen the bed – but never before looked to see what was growing in it.
In fact, there were really good heads of lettuce, which I marvelled at, considering my efforts usually bolt. However, having been reminded that I could be growing some lettuce right now, this morning I’ve sown some of my favourite in a shady spot, where I might get something of splendour.
In the meantime, gracing the front windowsill are many mini lettuce leaves, which come in handy for sandwiches. It could definitely be worse!
