Well, the lettuce has bolted. I knew when the temps hit 90 the other day that it was going to happen. I shouldn’t complain. With the cooler weather we’ve had, this is the best lettuce season I’ve ever had. Last week the cabbage bolted, so I had to pick it–one giant head of Chinese cabbage. The starter cost me 3 dollars–but I’ve picked the outer leaves three times already, so I can’t complain. I’ll chop the cabbage and mix it with sausage and make meat buns. Those store in the freezer for those days when I don’t want to cook. As for the lettuce, I guess we’ll be eating a lot of salad this week. I have about 4 heads out there…no make that five. By the end of the week I’ll look like a rabbit!
As for Junior and his door training–sigh. The little kit isn’t so thrilled with this door thing. He is going through faster, but he still waits for us to hold it open, at least partway! When it is propped open with a close -pin, he hops in and out at will. When it is closed, he acts like it is an imovable object. But we’re working on it. A few more days and I think he’ll have it. No, really, I think he will!
