This was the scene yesterday over at the vegetable beds near the nursery: last year’s lettuce popping up again in March! This has been going on for several years now: Pam & Roger, the gardeners, allow some of their lettuce to go to seed, and–voila!–we have all kinds of baby lettuce the following spring. If thinned, many of these will produce beautiful big heads.
At this point, you make be contemplating a Victory Garden. Good idea! If you don’t happen to have lettuce volunteers, it’s not too late to seed–and lettuce comes on fast in the spring.
