Big Boston Lettuce In The Greenhouse
I eat a salad nearly every day of the year. And while anything green, leafy, and not poisonous is fair game for my salad bowl, lettuce holds a special place in my heart, and I always grow numerous varieties of it in my kitchen garden.
But since daytime temperatures on the farm are already hanging in the mid-80s and threatening to go only higher, it's obvious that we're quickly nearing the end of a lovely but all-too-brief spring lettuce season. In many places, however, there's still plenty of time to plant. Click here to learn how you can go from seed to salad bowl in less than a month, no matter where you live (well, unless it's here, in which case you'll have to wait until fall to sow your seeds--but once you do it'll still be less than a month before you'll be able to start harvesting).
Need a little help getting growing? The Vegetable Gardener's Bible by Ed Smith has been my favorite gardening book for the past 7 years, and I highly recommend it for kitchen gardeners of all levels. Click here to read my review of it.
P.S. Oops! I somehow forgot to include the photo of Cary eating her birthday popcorn in Sunday's post, but it's there now. Click here if you'd like to take a look.
