I was just about to give up hope on our rather large patch of lettuce and spinach and talked to my husband about mowing it down.
And then I parted the weeds! Turns out, having a weedy spinach and lettuce patch provides natural protection from the long, hot summer days. Would you believe me if I told you that I meant to let those weeds get so out of control? I didn't think so.
Tonight's meal consisted solely of salad items from the garden, hard cooked eggs, mushrooms, olives, and goat cheese. Boy am I ever glad that he didn't mow that patch down!
