There’s only one thing I love more than eating salad and that’s growing salad
. Even though the property where I live is too polluted to grow food on (a buried heating-oil tank leaked more than
50 years ago), we have several containers that we grow salad greens in. I recently went through my seed packets and noticed
we’ve accumulated over 20 varieties of lettuce seeds. It’s pretty cool that we’ve begun to grow things that we definitely
can’t get at the grocery store or have a slim chance of even finding at the farmers’ market. Then there’s the satisfaction of
growing our own food. Nothing is more awesome than going out to snip some fresh salad greens when I’m making a salad
for my lunch.
