Nah. The lettuce is toast. It never recovered from the last cutting…or maybe I didn’t recover. The leaves were so pretty and I enjoyed just looking at them. Once the pretty leaves were gone, I totally neglected the rest of the lettuce. The Plant Protective Services people would have thrown me in jail if they knew.
I guess the gardening gods felt sorry for me because here’s what I found last night, just in time for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.
This bachelor button popped up in the tray with the lettuce I transplanted and brought in the house. And because I try to embrace a live and let live attitude I let it grow. The stem is zig-zaggy because I kept pulling it under the lights, but we have a bloom and even a few more buds on the plant. YEAH!!!
