lettuce bowl



My Dad and several friends have terrific gardens.....even Cindy Lou has had a little one in the back corner of our yard for a few years. Well, here's mine!!! My sister in law got a "lettuce bowl" a few weeks ago at our local farm stand. It had 3 or 4 different kinds of lettuce. I loved it!! I went back to get one and they were all gone. So I put one together myself. There was only one kind of lettuce left when I went up to the nursery....but that's okay. I'm thrilled with the results!! I have enough almost every day to make a salad for lunch and our dinner. Last Friday when I had a surprise luncheon for my mother in law's 70th birthday I made 24 chicken salad and egg salad croissants. I was happy to put my homegrown lettuce on them! Plus, it just looks pretty!! What a treat for me!!!!!

Great Idea. Small, manageable and with a sense of accomplishment. Perfect.
