the iceberg appears glinting

If I had lettuce as fine as that…the rabbits would eat it before I could finish reading your poem. 🙂

hahaha thanks Charles – the reason I am so excited about this lettuce is because it’s the first time I have managed to grow one to look like an iceberg lettuce – the rest have gone completely psycho (really tall and no heart) – this will probably be the last one that looks like a real lettuce – hahahaha 😀

I loved this. And I hope Clive Palmer does too. And Gina Rinehart.

Maybe Gina will go on the maiden voyage 😉 thanks Nigel

So true! Our lettuce this year is doing magnificently, the planter on the windowsill is literally overflowing and i’ve been harvesting a good side salad for lunch every day for the past few weeks!

that sounds wonderful Juliet 🙂 I love when you can just pick a part off a plant and it keeps growing – my silverbeet is like that – just harvest a few leaves at a time and they are quickly replaced.

if I had iceberg like this one in the store I would buy them, usually they look so pale and not yummy…
now haiku du potager…I can see an apetizing series 🙂

that’s a pretty good idea Ben 🙂 a potager series (one per vegetable and fruit) thanks

Hehe – very, very clever. Perhaps if Clive ate more of the straight-from-the-ground green stuff he would be less inclined to act like he’d been smoking it

bwhahahaha what a thing to say bluebee (you may get a visit from his pals if you’re not careful – hahaha) – he is quite the character (should bring a bit of light relief to the election)

Love this so much. You rule!!!

hahaha thanks Selma 🙂 I think we will give the maiden voyage of the Titanic 2 a big miss, hey!
