Enjoying Spring Lettuce

Remember our little salad seedlings.......



Can't believe it's already time, but thanks to my 'window' covering, we're enjoying spring
lettuce, straight from the garden. Every year I mark the day we've picked our first salad, tomato, & peppers.  It's kinda been my way of keeping note with the weather changes in Ohio.  Sooo...when someone says, "this weather's horrible. I won't have any veggies ripe." I'm usually the person that says, "No...actually we're right on time."  One year, I recall a certain somebody saying the tomatoes were late, when actually they were earlier than the year before. Anyway, today's treat was delicious. We enjoy it in the simplest form. Just a dash of salt, olive oil, & vinegar. This beautiful salad that has a green center & red tipped leaves is called Yugoslavian Red from The Cooks Garden. This salad goes good with sweets so you can easily pair it with raisins & blueberries with a honey based dressing. 
(I'll have to share that recipe some other time.)
Until then, to enjoying the fruits of our labor:)
