This is the year that growing lettuce got pretty enough to share on patio tables. With all these fresh greens being grown in some very convenient places It’s a great time to whip up some home made dressings. I first saw these adorable lettuce, kale and herb container varieties featured in today’s post out at Veggie Trials last summer and was SHOCKED to see them in OHIO this year. It usually takes a few years for the cool trendy stuff to reach Ohio markets and shopping centers. I shared the first basket I saw at a local garden center right away on Facebook. I hope you will check out my images from my back kitchen garden patio where I’m currently growing lettuces, herbs and flowers that I used in today’s recipe share.

I shared a quick live stream at lunch today and also took this video with my Nikon 1 J4. I hope you will take a look and don’t be shy… ask me questions about the veggies and flowers I’m growing in this video.
