Plant More Lettuce or Is This Still Growing?

Last month, I was nervous that I killed my lettuces when I harvested them. Luckily for me, the lettuces were fine and grew again.

So now, here I am one month later and facing a similar situation. I’ve gotten about 4-5 harvests from this container of lettuce and it’s starting to show.

I’m not sure if this lettuce better days are behind it or if it still has some fight left. I went to Trina from Silver Heights Farm and asked her what she thought since she is who I bought them from.

She said that they still be good for a few more weeks. Once they start shooting up in a tube like shape that is when they are finished growing.

That got me thinking some about what I’ve been seeing in my Brooklyn garden. Hmm…
