The weather since my last post has been relatively warm, so I haven't been as obsessed with the lettuce survival. We are still eating the lettuce I picked more than a week ago, before the single digit lows, so I have had not need to get into the lettuce patch. However, a couple of days after the super low nights I opened the tunnels to take the blankets off of the lettuce to give it some sun and it all looked good. Hallelujah!
In a couple of days I will need to pick lettuce again, then we'll see what it's really like.
But tonight I am celebrating the Solstice, the return of the Sun.
