The First Vegetable Harvest from My Fire Escape

Posted on Jun 17 2009 - 3:00am by Mike Lieberman

After being away for six days, I was shocked when I returned to see the growth of the lettuces in my containers. It was definitely time for my first harvest. Most of the leaves were at least 6 inches and didn’t want them to get much larger.

This brings me one step closer to my goal of getting one salad. Didn’t turn this into a salad because I had already eaten dinner.

Made this post abbreviated because still playing catch up from being away. I definitely wanted to get something posted though as it’s pretty damned exciting (at least for me).

Will definitely do a more substantial post later in the week. Hopefully, it’ll include some fire escape salad in it.
