Growth in the salad bar

Remember when we planted lettuce in our earth boxes a month ago?

Everything is growing well and while it’s still WAY too early to start harvesting, I think we’re going to have some yummy salads this spring. Our only worry is that this early warm spring will move too quickly into a hot early summer, causing the lettuce to bolt and become bitter.

We’re researching ideas for building a frame with a sunscreen on it that we can use to cover the earth boxes but haven’t decided on the final designs for that. We’d love to hear any suggestions.

    Thanks! The lettuce and chives were bought at seedlings. We have only started basil from seed this year so far.
