Meet our beautiful never ending head of lettuce. We keep picking the outer leaves for our eating pleasure and it keeps growing; it’s at least 16″ across now. I’m surprised it hasn’t bolted in our summer heat, but I’m glad it hasn’t.

On a sadder note, the beautiful Port Orford cedar in our backyard is dying. It has a fungal root disease that is affecting one of it’s main trunks. The arborist came out and diagnosed it last week. Now we have to decide, in conjunction with our neighbors since it sits on the corner of our three properties, whether to cut the afflicted trunk and hope that will stop the spread or cut the whole thing down since you can’t get rid of the presence of the fungus, just hope that it stays dormant. Here we have been wanting to cut down our two annoying Japanese pines in the yard and our only, favorite cedar starts dying. It is a lovely old tree that is about 60-70′ tall and at least 4′ in diameter.
