Tiny First Homegrown Salad Harvested and It Tastes Good!

Granted, these lettuce plants' leaves were already about 2-3 in. long when we planted them last Sunday, but look! Not only did the leaves grow to around 6 in. long; a bunch of new, shorter leaves grew in, too. I snipped them all off to leave about 2 in. (even though the rule of thumb seems to be to leave 1 in.--I was paranoid). Supposedly, all those leaves will just keeping growing back--endless salad--for a couple of months.

I just ate some leaves plain and they have a slightly spicy taste to them. I'm still going to add a little olive oil and vinegar to tonight's first homegrown lettuce salad--whoo-hoo!
