Lettuce Entertain You

So my container garden is growing splendidly.

I only have the two tomatoes still and they are just starting to head towards orange. My lettuce, well, they look like lettuce. They taste like poison, but they look like lettuce. My sister in law warned me about this, apparently they get bitter once it gets warm. Note taken. My zucchini is looking and tasting like zucchini. In a proud triumph, I made zucchini bread from my own hand grown zucchini (grown from seed, mind you) and it tasted yumm, to umm. Lastly, pictured above…it is what I assume to be one of my first potential pumpkins. They are vining out of their containers and onto the patio.

My hibiscus has been blooming like crazy for the last month as well. It just rained when I went out to take these pictures so everything is a bit dewy looking.

And because I love dying hibiscus just about as much as I love blooming hibiscus, here is this beauty for you.

And, if you love the wilting hibiscus blossom as much as I do, you might like a copy of this image hanging in your home, available in my etsy shop.

  1. In regards to the lettuce, sometimes if you let it chill out in the fridge for a few days, it looses its bitterness. I know it only works on some varieties though… Hope it works on yours!
