Lettuce Munchers ~ Outdoor Challenge Day 14

picking lettuce

Nothing beats munching on a big leaf of lettuce fresh from the greenhouse :)

We walked up to my moms and raided her greenhouse *grin*. She always has a patch of lettuce growing year round for salads and plate garnish...

But today we weren't the only ones munching on the lettuce! As we checked the leaves we picked for baby slugs and other creepy critters that might be hanging out in the lettuce patch, we discovered a bunch of baby aphids. I don't think they would harm us if one of the kids had accidentally ate one but I definitely had to be quick to get my hands on M's leaf before he popped it straight into his mouth LOL. Thankfully everyone's lettuce was clean and they were able to munch away like bunnies :)

I love the photos! I'm thinking lady bugs would like your lettuce. =) Fresh lettuce does sound good.
