Early Gardening-ABC Wednesday "G"




g

 
Even though I don't have anywhere to plant this winter lettuce, I was tempted to buy a few pots at last Saturday's Santa Fe Farmers Market.  I resisted and went home only with memories of them.

  1. Never heard of winter lettuce before. Is it a regional salad type?

    1. It definitely must be regional; I had never heard of it myself, but that's what the vendor called it.

  2. I'm always temped by plants but I have to keep reminding myself of my "black" thumb.

    1. That has been my experience too. But last year I discovered the Earthbox. Planted tomatoes and cucumbers. I had a ton of wonderful cukes and tomatoes. Best of all, I did nothing but add water (And I even put that on a timer.) Follow very simple setup directions and even I couldn't fail. This year I'm adding two more boxes, one home-made and the other purchased used.

  4. too early to plant anything here, I guess, even if called 'winter', but then I know almost nothing about gardening

  5. I would have been tempted too Kate, but home grown veggies need so much attention..

  6. I have noticed work going on in our community garden already. I'm not sure if they are planting or just getting ready to plant.

  7. Fresh veggies are such a treat to find in winter. Noticed that our produce departments are starting to offer more variety lately. Spring crops are being harvested somewhere.

  8. I am terrible at gardening. I have a garden of a different kind today on my blog.

  9. There have been some things in my life that I've found it hard to walk away from. Lettuce, however, is not one of them! :))

  11. They look good and may be worth their weight in gold as the drought in California continues....

  13. I only grow herbs in Colorado. The deer would probably come up on the deck if I had lettuce!

  15. I only eat. I don't grow things.

  16. Know the feeling. Got the itch to put things in the ground now to grow, but then....reality hits.

  17. And I don't even have my tomato plants purchased. It's a good thing - we had a heavy frost last night and back down to 23!

  18. This makes me want to purchase some lettuce seeds right away!

  19. I've been surprised at how resilient some of our lettuce was last year but last summer's batch didn't survive our fall frost. We're not likely to be planting lettuce around here until May.
