A January Salad

Last year I planted a short row of lambs lettuce in the garden. It did well in a shady spot producing salad leaves for a couple of months. I let the plants go to seed and as well as collecting seed for this spring I left the plants to see whether they would self seed. Well they did and I have lambs lettuce everywhere.

With such unseaonably mild weather the plants are growing and this weekend I was able to pick fresh salad from the garden- in mid January. I added a few baby leaves from ruby chard and spinach together with some young dandelion leaves - a mixed salad all grown within a few yards of the back door, very local food.
