Harvest Monday 2/20/12

This week and last week we harvested Butter crunch, Prizehead and Black Seeded Simpson lettuce from Livingston Seed Co. We've taken 1 pound and 13 ounces from the cold frame over the last two weeks. So far this year we've harvested harvested just over 3 pounds of lettuce. Hooray!


Stop by Daphne's Dandelions to see what other gardeners around the world are harvesting this time of year.

  2. That is some really nice looking lettuce! We are just easing into the first of the season lettuces and I am thrilled to be bringing salad greens back to the table again - even if it is only small amounts for the time being.

  4. Wonderful lettuce Jody! It is so nice to have some fresh veggies during the winter. It looks like your cold frames are doing well!

    1. Thank you Robin, our cold frames are doing better than I could have hoped. I think it's a combination of several things like a mild winter, the light in the frame, the cover we put on at night, maybe even the hot manure beneath the soil. I don't expect the same level of success in a colder year after the manure has gotten cold.
