A Salad: In Memorium

A sad thing happened just now. I went to my three beautiful lettuce plants to grab some leaves to make a salad. Well, when I was trying to pull off a leaf from the middle plant, the scrawny one, the stalk snapped, which made me very sad. So, naturally, I pulled ALL of the leaves off of it and made a big salad, pictured below.

Goodbye, scraggly runt middle lettuce plant.  You may have been a bit stunted because your brother and sister shaded you out all the time, but your leaves are delicious, and your stalk is making fertile soil in my compost.
