Garden report, new house

Last week the lettuce leaves were so tiny and fragile I felt guilty plucking them for a salad. But this week the plants are at the edge of producing so much we have to eat salads at every meal just to keep up. Luckily, last night we had a little help.

I didn't have any random vegetables to throw on top, so while rooting around the pantry for something to decorate the salads, I found this Japanese wasabi seaweed + sesame seed stuff meant for rice that I inherited when somebody COSed (thanks, Diana!). It added the perfect zing to the greens.

I'm a little worried about the garden's Chinese cabbage. The neighbors grow it, too, and it's getting to the point where there may not be enough people in Zambia to eat it all.
