Today got really hot, so I decided it might be time to pull the Lettuce and the Spinach. This lettuce is drying on a full bath towel and the spinach is in my largest bowl. We will be having a lot of salads and sandwiches the next few days.
And the spinach ought to give us one or two good meals if I steam it, more if I leave it raw. Maybe if I have time I will make some spinach pasta! Oh the possibilities.
This is my first successful crop of both spinach and lettuce so I am very happy about that. I had 4 square feet of lettuce full and two square feet of spinach full. Now I have to decide what I am going to plant in their place.
I pulled one pea pod off today to see how big they were inside, not big enough yet. Is there any better way to check?
Well, as I was checking the beans today, they look like some kind of suckering bug has been eating from the backsides of the leaves or something. This is what they look like.
I looked for aphids, did not find any. Anyone have any thoughts on this one?
