lettuce retentive

It’s a little funny how anal-retentive I get about lettuce from the garden. I’d rather eat spinach in general, but taking out heads of lettuce is more painful for me than harvesting spinach. That empty spot, I suppose. I know I could grow leaf lettuce (and I do). It’s just harder to totally remove a plant from the garden.
There comes a point when I realize that we’ll never be able to eat all that lettuce if I don’t start pulling. 


That’s what I did yesterday. One of the big heads of Cos that grew in last year’s compost area, a couple of small Bibb heads and some red leaf lettuce.  
Ahh. It’s not winter.

  1. No problem here. I’m harvesting leaf lettuce and thinning out the few kinds of head lettuce I have so they can get bigger. But they’re all in a race against the squash and cucumbers I put in next to them last week. Empty space won’t be empty long if they can even keep from being over-run.
