After all the heavy rain yesterday, today we had clear blue sky and sunshine. It was a pleasure to be outside and feel the warmth of the sunshine and a good time to check on the lettuce plants.
This is an experiment of mine to attempt to grow some salad for the winter in my small greenhouse on the patio.
I sowed some lettuce seeds at the end of September, a little over a month ago they looked like this.
I transplanted them three plants to a pot and now they have grown well and look really healthy.
Today I transplanted them again just one to a pot.
These went back into the greenhouse and I am hoping to start picking some leaves in a few weeks. If this project is successful I will be measuring food yards rather than food miles.
