January 4: there is a bit of purple growth missing from this picture because we had a big salad last night.

There was a hint of rain around 9AM, but out Richmond way it looks clear, so I doubt we're getting any reprieve. But I might rush out and weed a little more before the sun comes back full force. 

Words and concepts which come to mind in the first instance are: growth, decay, resurgence, and healthy eating; followed by water, sun, heat, and dirt.  And mites.

Ben's last day off today.  And a day off from the Sketchbook, which is almost done.  Phew!


  1. good for you for pushing on with the lettuce chronicle! I look forward to reading throughout the year AND to when you get to the point of "I'm so glad I did this" too.

    enjoy your lettuce both for eating and for the journey.

  2. Oh, thank you, Denise. I think at this point I'm learning a lot more about observation than about lettuce! At the very least, I will have eaten a lot of lettuce at the end of the month, but if I can learn observation, that will be absolutely fantastic as it is something I don't do well.


I love comments. Thank you for taking the time! But do please leave your real or blog name.
