Lettuce Doing Great!
Let's check on the 4 beds of lettuce and see how they are doing.
This was the first bed of lettuce seedlings planted back on 09-28-18. I've been picking Four Seasons, Salad Bowl, Simpson,Red Salad Bowl & Lollo Rossa for about a month now … and replacing picked lettuce with transplanted seedlings (which were growing in clumps of 3 to 4 plants) from the other lettuce beds.
Second bed of lettuce seedlings was planted three weeks later on 10-19-18. I've started to pick Green Ice (dark green) & Lollo Rosa (dark red lettuce from the Loose Leaf Mix). The Salad Bowl (light green) and Red Salad Bowl (light red) is ready to pick now. It's amazing once they finally get going how quickly they grow!
Third bed of lettuce seedlings was also planted on 10-19-18. I've been picking Curly Oakleaf (dark green) & Sunset Hybrid (dark red). The Salad Bowl is almost ready to pick. The dark red lettuce varieties don't grow as large or taste as sweet as the green varieties.
Fourth bed of lettuce seedlings was planted on 10-21-18. I've started to pick some Antares (light red). The Four Seasons (might be Yugoslavian Red … at least that is what my notes say it is) has a way to go. There is also some Simpson (light green) in the bed.
