I said I would update the last garden post, so here is how it’s growing:
The lettuce is going gangbusters, we’ve had enough rain to keep us in an abundance of both butter and romaine lettuce. We don’t replant, but snip the leaves off the plant using garden shears. This lets the lettuce grow back.
One thing we have noted is that garden lettuce is more tender and harder to poke with a fork than store bought lettuce. No wonder rabbits love this stuff!
Spinach has also come in well. We keep picking the leaves off and they keep growing back. Fresh spinach is a lovely addition to morning smoothies!
6 large Strawberries
1/2 med Apple
1/2 tsp flax seed
Coconut water for mixing
1C Ice if fruit is not frozen
*Note: if the smoothie is too chunky, add more fluid. This enables the blender to move the ingredients and blend better.
The smoothie recipe is a great way to start the day off healthy and with lots of energy!
