I thought this banana pepper might be ready to go, but it was still bitter and tough. Note to self: banana peppers are supposed to be yellow.
The green lettuce has bolted, thanks to the heat wave last week...

A volunteer tomato plant, from last year's mega-monster cherry tomato bush (the thing took over the entire garden bed it was planted in). I found at least ten of these as I weeded while I picked. As my mom wisely says: a weed is any plant that is growing where you don't want it. This, and all its siblings, qualified as weeds.
Can you spot the non-weed in that thicket?
There it is: a teeny little baby lettuce plant. I take a few leaves from each plant.
The end haul:
Add some croutons, a little shredded cheddar and vinaigrette dressing: YUM.
