More Lettuce?

Yesterday was the first of December (son’s birthday…yea!) and I planted another pkg. of lettuce seed.  This is the first time I’ve sowed a second crop of greens and tho it is quite foggy and a bit chilly outside I’m hoping that some of what went into the ground will germinate and we can have a few more baby green salads this winter.  Our other beds of lettuce and mixed greens are doing well, the black-seeded Simpson and Romaines are about 6 inches tall and still quite tender.  The Asian baby leaf (in photo) came up fast and got tough fairly quickly.  Next year I will plant those more sparingly, we couldn’t eat them fast enough and they were much more tasty as babies.
