P365 – Day 142 lettuces
Posted On 22 May 2011
A good thing about letting lettuces go to seed is that a bit later on you get new lettuces.
In the bricks that are holding up the garden beds.
And sometimes, exactly where you want them.
Right next to a self-sown spring onion. Who needs to buy seeds?
I think that they don't grow well in hot weather, when they do bolt to seed. I haven't had much success either. This year was the best I've ever managed. All the gardening books say it's easy to grow, but I disagree. It's a temperamental vegetable.
I have NEVER successfully grown lettuce. They either sit sulking and not growing, or bolt to seed. Sigh.
