Lettuce not forget the greens of summer, or put another way, wonderful greens that grow during the hot desert season for salads, stir frys and other tasty uses.
Pictured is a basket of rinse greens: sweet potato leaves, some last of the season celery, Egyptian Spinach, Sorrel, Basil, Nasturtium and Roselle. This is a delicious alternative to standard lettuce which gives up once the warm to hot time begins.
Sow, on to the Seed Share. . .
Sow? 105+ Degrees? Yes!

I'm going to use the other half of the greens for salad tonight.
I don't think we have had a visit from one in a couple of years. We do have a Cardinal family show once or twice a year for a short time, always a delight. This character is just as shy generally, but always fun to see him/her.
I hope to see you at the Seed Share July 5th, to pick up some seeds to sow for fall and get your questions answered.
Don't forget you can purchase my perpetual monthly planting calendar through links on the side bar.
Have a great day, be safe and drink lots of water!
