Every Ten Days to Sow

Want fresh greens daily in the summer garden? Remember to sow your lettuce seeds every ten days or so and you can have your greens growing in tandem. When one head is ready, there’s another batch starting to sprout. Unless of course you have an intensive bunny population and you can try the route of starting your lettuce seeds in a container.

As Jim Loehr reminds us, “We grow the aspects of our lives that we feed – with energy and engagement – and choke off those we deprive of fuel. Your life is what you agree to attend to.”  So attend to your calendar; mark those ten day intervals and keep lettuce greens growing daily in your summer garden.

P.S. Our favorite is Buttercrunch Bibb Lettuce – a very heat tolerant variety and tasty, too!  Don’t forget to send your questions, comments, or any garden/design topics you’d like to see/read. Otherwise, it's what comes to me!
