Miracle Lettuce?

29 05 2011

So last year I seeded a second row of lettuce in August (I write these things down in my garden journey). It sprouted and I realized it was way to late for it to grow enough to be edible, and noted that next year I would think to do that MUCH earlier.

Where the garden is use to be a 5 foot pile of snow 🙂 Well under that pile of snow emerged these little lettuce sprouts and leaves, green, looking alive. I left them and I am not really sure if they have grown since the snow melted, but then again that was just a few weeks ago. 😉 I tilled the garden last week and couldn’t resist just leaving that little row of miracle lettuce to see what would happen. Grandma says it’s possible….well it rained all week so nothing yet (and no sprouts yet from everything else I planted) but the sun was out today so this week I am sure I’ll be able to tell if it is growing lettuce or if it froze and defrosted in the exact state it was in!

I’ll keep you posted.

How does your garden grow?

Eat Well, Be Well,
