This will be my first attempt at lettuces - I do spinach every once in a while, but lettuces will be the first go. Fingers crossed...and I of course already screwed up and got a heading lettuce which doesn't do well down here. Oh well. Maybe it'll be the best out of all of them.


Lettuce is very forgiving, it makes me feel like Eliot Coleman. It makes me want to start a lettuce only CSA. Just keep those seedlings moist but even if you forget, they will sprout on their own. Everything loves lettuce. I keep a bottle of Captain Jack's Dead Bug (spinosad) handy. And once the seedlings have a few sets of leaves, I give them a little fish fertilizer.

    In the summer of 2015 my husband and I acquired a fine German touring machine (aka VW Jetta Wagon TDI) so that we could escape the confines of Austin from time to time. We never know if we're going to head out to Lockhart for barbecue, Fredricksburg for peaches or Marble Falls for a soapbox derby. The only sure thing is that my trusty Canon goes along for the ride
