The First Harvest (16/07/2021)
Today we officially harvested the first lettuce from our allotment. This lettuce, grown from a seed, has required minimal work besides occasional watering. It reduced our carbon footprint simply by being a tiny seed when it came to us instead of full-sized. We didn't have to burn fossil fuels to travel to the shop several miles away to buy it, either. There are also several more of them, begging to constitute the next salad or become a burger topping. Now it's just up to us to make use of them instead of squandering them! It is a small (but significant) step in our quest to create a more sustainable lifestyle.
Next, we need to get harvesting the strawberries and raspberries!
