Lettuce Explain...

Organic LettucesThe first lettuces you get in Spring are the red salad bowl on the right of the picture, this is a reliable cold tolerant lettuce with little disease problems which we start sowing in February. The other lettuce you see are red batavian and little gem which we grow throughout the season in the tunnels now. We grow a red/green butterhead variety outside as well but with the poor summers we are having now this is getting like a bad habit. Maybe we should grow lettuces under cover only, but then it will be beautifull weather throughout the summer of course. Hum, maybe we should.
