How do you pronounce mesclun? I feel weird telling people I'm growing "mescaline", but I don't know how else to say it.


I just cut my first batch of said mesclun. I was so proud of how big and abundant it got, just like buying it in teh store. I feel like a proud parent :D.

I plan on bringing it to eat with my family for Christmas. I'm so excited to provide food grown organically in my own yard! I am also bringing my basil and was hoping to have tomatos, but they weren't ready yet so my husband and I went to the local farmer's market in Winter Park held every Saturday and bought some romas there. Then we went to Whole Foods and got some mozzarella balls. I hope my family thinks the salad is good!

I am also bringing fresh squeezed orange juice and pink grapefruit juice from my and my neighbor's trees that I squeezed yesterday. It made my whole house smell great. And enough key lime juice from my tree for two key lime pies. Being able to share your hard work with your family is so rewarding!

Happy holidays to everyone!

That all sounds so wonderful. You're making me want to get into the gardening mood.

Happy Holidays to you!
