P365 - Day 142 lettuces

A good thing about letting lettuces go to seed is that a bit later on you get new lettuces.

In the bricks that are holding up the garden beds.

And sometimes, exactly where you want them.

Right next to a self-sown spring onion. Who needs to buy seeds?


  1. I have NEVER successfully grown lettuce. They either sit sulking and not growing, or bolt to seed. Sigh.

  2. I think that they don't grow well in hot weather, when they do bolt to seed. I haven't had much success either. This year was the best I've ever managed. All the gardening books say it's easy to grow, but I disagree. It's a temperamental vegetable.


Hi! I know you hate having to type in the words as much as I do, but I am being furiously spammed, so I've had to reactivate that feature. If you're a real person I'd love to hear from you :-)
