2015_Day 24: The lettuce that could

Eagerly awaiting what the lettuce is going to look like after another week of daytime highs in the 50s, 60s and 70s.

Loving how the lettuce has been looking the past few days. I was worried a few cold nights (low 30s) had stifled its growth, but I can happily report that’s not the case. It’s much easier to see on the red lettuce in the center of the containers; the leaves on the Rouge d’Hiver definitely are getting, well, leafier.

It’s harder to tell with the green Black Seeded Simpson, which still looks much like it did a couple weeks ago. I looked, but wasn’t able to find the plastic shells from my mini greenhouses that I moved from Wisconsin, so the lettuce was left to deal with some really cold nights. I’m just glad it made it through. And with another weeks of 50s, 60s and 70s forecast, I have a feeling it will be a lot bigger.

I envision a fresh salad in my not-to-distant future.

Still waiting on a fresh salad with my own greens.
