October lettuce


My lettuce is happy. I have little patches of it here and there in the garden. We had some rain yesterday and the droplets looked pretty on the leaves. I have been planting lettuce seeds every few weeks all summer. The mid-summer seedings did nothing – not even any sprouts. Now it is growing. I guess it likes the cool weather. So far we haven’t even had a frost in my yard. When we do, I’ll do my best to cover the lettuce and see if it will last a while yet.

Lactuca sativa
