"Good chefs, like artists, are visionaries. You have to have a vision of the taste, the look, the smell of your masterpiece; you hold it in your mind and make it materialize."

Hail, Hail, the gang's all here...

So - did your tastebuds sit up? They should. This luscious lettuce is right out of my garden. On April 1. In Oregon. On the coast.
The secret? Raised bed and cloche cover.

It hailed last night. And several times today. But the lettuces were tucked in and happy. The peas in the uncovered beds were a little miffed at being beat on the head, but they'll get over it.
Nothing makes me happier than the first greens of the season from my garden!
