LIFE ON THE FARM

Lettuce Trials Part 1

August 16, 2014

Driven by a combination of excitement and curiosity, I couldn't help but throw in a bed of lettuce yet this year despite acquiring this plot late in the summer.  I had started some buttercrunch lettuce seeds in July hoping to find a place to put them.  Four weeks later, in mid August, I prepped a bed in this once weedy garden plot to put SPIN production methods into practice.   I will cover these transplants with a floating row cover to ward off pests and shade the lettuce from the hot summer sun.  As we get into September temperatures, the row cover will serve as frost protection for the lettuce and keep things growing for a few extra weeks.
