Well, a year ago I grew some leaf lettuce, and that proved to be a good experience.

I let some of the plants go to seed and collected the seed and had plenty of lettuce starts this spring.

This past week I've been enjoying the first of my lettuce harvest, which I find rewarding. I'm enjoying a good sized lettuce and carrot salad once or perhaps more per day. I like topping that with sunflower seeds or cashew pieces.

I'm also growing corn,tomatoes, carrots and pumpkins this year.

I've never had any interest in gardening before this, but in my retirement years I'm finding it a low cost, fun and interesting retirement activity.
