The First Harvest

My one pot of lettuce was overflowing, so I decided to pull it today. I wish I had taken a picture before I harvested it. It filled an entire colander.

Freshly Picked

I had planned on making a salad plus some wilted lettuce. However, by the time I had cleaned it, there wasn’t much left. Plus it was waterlogged. Next time I know to cut what I want for a salad before pulling it out of the pot.

I ended up wilting the lettuce like my Gummy (grandma) used to. I didn’t have a completely clear memory of how she did it, so I went off what I did remember.

I sautéed some chopped onions in a tiny bit of oil. When those were nice and brown, I added the lettuce. I let it cook for a minute or so. Then I deglazed the pan with white vinegar. A sprinkle of salt and pepper plus a teaspoon or so of sugar finished the dish. It actually tasted pretty close to what I remembered. I think Gummy would be proud of me.

Wilted Lettuce

I had bought another package of lettuce seeds, so I planted them in the same pot. I hope these new seeds grow as well as the previous ones.

Hello all!

My name is Kathryn. I live in suburban Cleveland. I have 2 cats, who are my kids. I work in early childhood education, specializing in infants at a local childcare center. I’ve also worked with preschoolers and school aged kids there. I used to be an ESL teacher in South Korea.

I love to bake. My coworkers get to be my taste testers. I enjoy coloring, and I even participate in a coloring Meet Up group. I’m a fan of all kinds of music, but country is my favorite. My kitties, Gidgette and Ivory, are my favorite models for my photography. I play around with photo editors to create what I call “Works of Art”. I’m not very good at it, but I do it anyway.
