Today was a good lettuce day.
8.8 oz from the bed planted in March that got snowed on. It’s planted tooooo thick and the leaves don’t have a chance to grow as well as the nicely spaced out lettuce (more transplants to go to my mother-in-law’s garden).
And lastly I harvested 2.5 oz from the lettuce plants that were transplanted into a self-watering container that’s waiting for it to warm up so I can put in sweet potato slips. There’s 15 plants in here.
Did I ever say the kale was coming along quickly? This stuff is almost three months old. The only reason it’s still in the ground is because it’s still cool outside and this is supposed to be a cool season crop. I picked some of the leaves hoping that it would give the plant a jump start.
I found a cabbage worm and her eggs.
Yesterday I realized I was a latent plant murderer. Today I proudly admit I’m a blatant bug murderer.
