Summer salads :-)

Last night, dinner was a salad of lettuce (two sorts), rocket and a sprig or two of that scratchy lettucy stuff, cucumber, peas, and little yellow plum-shaped "heirloom" tomatoes, all from the back garden. (The cheese, olive oil and balsamic vinegar came from Stop'n'Shop.) Even though the lettuces are zooming from seedling to bolted, it all tastes good!

Was a little annoyed this morning to see that the first ripe red tomato had blossom-end rot. Grr. That happened last year too... I think it's something to do with high humidity and then things drying out quickly and then more humidity... But I am going to have a bumper crop of various shapes and sizes of tomatoes, so losing a few won't hurt (and they go straight back to nature).

Must remember to pull all the overgrown radishes, and replant more lettuce...
