Lettuce Grown 3 Ways!
I first started my lettuce in a winter sown milk jug then transferred them, after they started growing, to different planting areas. This gave me a head start in our cold climate. They are a cold weather crop and went through a hard freeze with no problem. We were down to 26 degrees the night before last. I'm sure they have their limit though.
1. Soil Bag Growing
Here I cut the top of a potting mix bag making sure to leave some of the side.
2. In the garden
This lettuce has been growing in the garden with the cabbage and onions.
3. In a grow bag
This lettuce needs thinning but it's growing great in the grow bag!
You know it's just not as fun going shopping anymore. It gets me nervous and I can't breathe through the masks. I feel like Darth Vader. It's for my safety and yours, so I do it. I really think I just like to complain. ha ha!
I went early around 8:30 in the morning and the strawberries were there. The price for 2 lbs was $1.88. I bought 12 lbs of them for jam and eating. They were not stocked up on these and unless they had more in the back they probably ran out.
I saw a big watermelon for $5.99 and snatched that up.
The steak they advertised for $5.99 wasn't there. They did have hamburger but the price wasn't marked so I walked on by. For meat I bought spare ribs and chicken. A whole chicken was .95 cents a pound and spare ribs were $3,99 a pound (the half slab was $5.99).
People were all wearing masks and they had one way aisle shopping. Although there were some that just didn't get that concept.
Please leave a comment and let me know how it's going in your neck of the woods.
