This is a recent shot of the fall lettuce, from October 2nd. It is illuminated by christmas lights at night. You can see assorted mesclun, red romaine, and spicy mesclun (plus turnips and beets towards the back). Despite the cabbage worms, we still got quite a nice crop.
I'm going to have a garden party this weekend to use everything up before frost. This is the planned menu at this point, though I may adjust it over the next few days:
Pimiento Olive Cheeze & Crackers
Hummus, Babaganoush, & *Tabouleh w/ Pita
Morocan Olives and Oranges w/ Grilled Crostini
Lentils and Lemon w/ more Crostini

*Salad w/ *Grilled Beets/Turnips and Moroccan Orange Dressing
Grilled Garlic and Lemon Green Beans + *Peas
Grilled Moroccan Spiced *Carrots
*all starred items grown in my garden!
