I love garden lettuce. I would love to grow lettuce year round since it grows well in cooler weather. These are the starter plants I bought from the Amish community not too far from us.
They started off looking a bit puny after I planted them. And then the goats ate one row of them and then chickens broke into the garden a few times and caused problems….
I planted a mixed lettuce patch from seed that is popping up nicely. I am hoping that the weather stays nice so that it does well.
Here is what my starter plants currently look like. So far this week, I have picked lettuce daily—nice sandwich lettuce and bowl salad lettuces for supper.
I have some tomatoes and peppers started in little peat pots sitting in egg cartons. We let them stay inside on the kitchen counter until it warmed up a bit more. I think this week is looking like a good garden planting week!
