It's worth noting that often the regrowth of lettuce can be quite bitter - particularly the later into the summer you sure to pick a nice sweet variety!

King Arthur flour has an amazing recipe for spelt flour pancakes. You could just make a large batch of the dry ingredients and keep it in a big jar as your own pancake mix.

Has anybody used the Imperia ravioli maker? I have had no luck with this, the pasta sheets tend to tear in the rolling mechanism. I am definitely investigating other options to speed up ravioli making!

I agree with MaryWynn...burlap bags will eventually breakdown and won't really serve as a good planter any more. I ordered bulk potting soil this spring and thought storing it in burlap bags from my local coffee shop would be a great idea, but now I have a pile of potting soil and no more burlap bags. Just something to keep in mind!

My only comment would be about direct seeding tomatoes - that would work fine, but just be prepared to have tomatoes later than others who have started seeds indoors. And I would add that most farmer's I have come across all start their plants indoors to get tomatoes to market as fast as they can. I second removing excess leaves, particularly those closest to the ground as that is where blight tends to start.

This stuff is also called Claytonia and it rocks! It's tender like lettuce but without any of the bitterness. It also has a bit more of crunch and juiciness than lettuce. You can also find this green in some winter time salad mixes as it is very cold friendly.
