Living Art and Swans

FlatLettuceA

There’s so much beauty in growing vegetables. Cutting lettuce greens for harvest today, I had to pause to take photos of these flat lettuce. They have such an unusual growing pattern. After delivering greens today, we went into town to run errands and get haircuts. We stopped in a deli for lunch, and even though the sandwich and soup were good, the salad greens were so sad. After growing salad greens, I’ve become very critical of the greens many restaurants serve. Salad greens need to be picked that morning, and for a good salad, variety is key.

There are no pictures of swans, but this afternoon we saw our first flock of swans. On our way into town, six magnificent trumpeter swans flew overhead, not more than twenty feet off the ground. It means that winter is practically here.
