baby red romaine lettuce
Its definitely lettuce weather! I'm enjoying watching the plants grow. They love the cool spring rains.
I have about 10 lettuce varieties. This is red romaine. One of the types in my Valentine mix of red lettuces. Other varieties I have growing are Prizehead (my favorite), red oak leaf (another favorite), broad leaf escarole, Bibb, Boston, Merveille, and a couple other frilly red leaved types.
