Not Guilty. I Did Not Kill My Lettuces.

Posted on Jul 10 2009 - 3:30am by Mike Lieberman

When I last left you, I was wondering whether or not I properly harvested my lettuce. It was a week since I had harvested them and they were looking…dead.

This is my first time checking in since returning and am happy to say that the lettuces are ok and fully growing. It just took a bit longer after harvesting for them to grow again.

There is still some browning towards the bottom, but the growth is there.

I appreciate the comments that were left about lettuce not liking the heat and how to deal with that.I’ll definitely take those into consideration if it ever reaches above say 75 degrees here.

In the meantime, I’ll just enjoy and appreciate the fact that I’ll be able to get another salad from my fire escape.

    my man…..very good to see your lettuce pull through…my spinach
    has stunted in growth due to 95 and above temperatures the last 2 months

    75 should be a breeze for yours

    It's been reaching up to the mid-80s here. It's rough. Great spring weather, but it's July.

    Hey man, every salad grown on your balcony is one that Mansanto hasn’t touched and you didn’t have to pay for! Now that’s a VICTORY garden!
