First sprouts of the year
on 4/10 was several types of lettuce and bachelor buttons.
I love early loose leaf lettuce, its so fresh and you can pick it to about June 15th here.. at that point the heat makes it go to bitter.
I love it when I see people picking up lettuce seed in stores in late may and early june... They missed the best part of the lettuce season , even in Maine. Sometimes I approach them about wintersowing.. but a lot of times people think Im crazy. Even when I direct them to the forum or the site.
