Petite Rouge Heirloom Lettuce In The Garden
There's nothing better than eating freshly picked food in season--except when you trick the seasons and extend your harvest. Thanks to floating row covers, heavy clear plastic, and some old bedsheets, we're still enjoying all kinds of gorgeous and tasty organic salad greens. (Click here to learn how you can go from seed to salad bowl in less than a month--no matter where you live.) Of course even the loveliest, most delicious lettuces pale in comparison to the star of Saturday night's dinner--fresh, tender venison on the opening day of deer season. I was out in the field with the sheep and managed to bag two bucks armed with nothing more than my shepherd's crook and Cary's baby bottle. Now that's country living!
