As we ease into the third week of harvests, we’re confronted with a farming dilemma. What can we do when our rigorously deliberate (and spaced) lettuce plantings all ripen on the identical time? I suppose we ask everybody to PLEASE make plenty of salad! These child Romaines weren’t purported to be prepared till subsequent week, however they’re prepared now! Some crops like lettuce cannot simply hand around in the fields and wait their flip. Once they’re prepared, they’re prepared!

PRO TIP: Feeling overwhelmed with greens? Spend quarter-hour washing ALL your lettuce and cooking greens as quickly as you get an opportunity. Wash, spin dry and retailer in an hermetic container (ziplock bag works) so that you’re prepared to tug out the leaves for salads all week. Additionally, whip up a giant jar of salad dressing so you will get your salad on the desk in lower than 60 seconds!
