Yeah, Spinach back. You can call me Spike. We might as well be on a first name basis cuz it's lookin' like I'm gonna be around for a while. Frog Lady and me had a little talk after she found out I'd been postin' on her precious frog log. She don't make it here much so I figgered I could set the record straight on a thing or two. So whaddya know she actually shows up a coupla days ago and she sat there for hours - like she was writin' War and Peas or sumthin'. I thought I was in the clear but she got to the end and saw what I been up to -- guess that last picture of the spinach patch I posted was way bigger than the usual size. And hey, why not, the spinach has been awesome!

Oops, I'm goofin' on our agreement. Seems the Frog Lady realized she could use a little help around here, so I'm gonna hang around - check some things out and report back. Only deal is I had to promise not to write so much about SPINACH! Sheez - alright alright. Even though me and my pals are really the story of the Spring garden (IMHO), I been checkin' out some other patches and what do I find but lettuce, the pampered darlings of the greenhouse set. Well, they been out in the field for a while, and thanks to all that coddling, they seem to have, um, grown. They always were showoffs. Frog lady and crew been getting too busy to hold their little lettucey hands at night so here's how they're hoggin' the show now. Check it out -- kinda over the top (IMHO) but there it is. Some folks'll do anything for attention!

So here's some BIG pictures of some BIG lettuce (I always did say they had BIG HEADS.)

signin' off,
