Let us take a look at Lettuce~

Gunnar's raised bed garden is coming right along.
Thought I'd give you a picture update.

Isn't it beautiful?
I love the blackness of the dirt against the vibrance of the green.

Gunnar has been growing little starter plants, various peppers & tomato in his window sill
& just planted those too ... they are just a bit small to see in this pic.

It's about time for a salad, don't ya think ... & a green onion or two?

Just one minute while I stir up a bowl of homemade ranch dressing.
You're looking pretty good there, lettuce.

This delicate dill just might make that ranch dressing a little tastier.

Remember how I told you about the cilantro making its grand appearance in the salsa?
Completely stole the show.

And last but not least, these chives are about to perk up some garlic mashed potatoes.
Ah yea, we are loving Gunnar's little raised bed garden.

It may be little garden, but we're grateful for it.
Nothing like walking out the back door & clip off some fresh herbs or tasty veggies.

  1. This is lovely! I would adore a garden like this, you did a great job!!

  2. It's all my son, Gunnar ... so proud of him. Thanks, Ashley, for stopping by.

  3. There's nothing like hopping into the garden and picking a fresh salad. I found my garlic chives at the weekend and they are fantastic in mashed potatoes. Hmmmm, might just put together some more for this evening! Take care. Chel x

    1. Garlic mashed potatoes are one of our faves! I picked lettuce, chives, & green onions for tonight's tossed salad. The freshness of taste is unbeatable. Blessings, Chel C =)

  4. Yum...I love butter lettuce the best! Come link up to Centerpiece Wednesday linky party and share this post with us.

    1. Hello Style Sisters =) Thank you for the invitation to link-up ... I just did!

  5. My garden doesn't look near as pretty as yours... Probably because I hate weeding.

  6. I always wanted to grow my own salad-who knew how CUTE it all was, too?!

    1. This made me giggle ... you're right ... it's down-right adorable!

  7. Hi Ashley. Thank you for visiting! I will def stop by & see you too =)

  8. Great to see your plants are doing good in a high raised garden box. Great shots!
