The Smell Of Lettuce
Once again we slide from one season to the next.
We made our final batch of cheese last Thursday. Today, they were waxed. Today was the last morning milking until November. And, in a seamless stretch to the garden, today we picked the first lettuce of the season. 2 cases of red boston, 2 cases of romaine, and 2 of red leaf. ( each case is 24 heads). I forgot how incredibly fragrant a freshly cut head of lettuce is. It was rainy and cold and really muddy, and I couldn't help but think how fortunate we are to be here, today, doing what we do.
