Today I put lettuce in the ground


The warm dry weather continues here in NOrthern California. It's worrisome because the river is below normal and the snow pack is negligible. We need more winter here desperately!

But today in the warmth of the 2pm to 4pm sunshine, I dug a small row and planted some lettuce, a mix of Black seeded Simpson and Buttercrunch and romaine. It's supposed to rain next week so I watered a little and am hoping some sprouts will show themselves. The night time temperatures are down into the twenties and that might discourage the seeds from germinating but it's certainly worth a try. It means early lettuce at the end of March or early April which would be wonderful.
