Garden Desktop: Spring Lettuce

This week's garden desktop is young Batavian Nevada lettuce growing in one of our raised garden beds. This is 3rd generation seed, saved from the original Renee's Seeds mixed lettuces pack I started in 2003. A couple of volunteers came up in the same pot as the grapevine we moved to our new place, so I planted them along with the grapevine. They thrived all summer in the shade under the vine leaves, and then bolted in the late summer heat.

I'm looking forward to seeing the results of new Renee's Seeds 'cut and come again' mesclun mix that I just sowed this past weekend. I'll have to tuck away a late sowing to let it go to seed, and keep saving!
