Lettuce be ‘avin you

As we are eating the latest batch of lettuce it is time to plant up the plug plants of lettuce sown a few weeks ago, and of course to start sowing some more.

This year I have lots of varieties to try out – I’m looking for taste, looks (colour and shape), resistance to bolting in heat or good for standing over winter. This batch is for summer eating and potentially for identifying which varieties I think will be good for seed saving; on looks alone Sanguine Ameliore is looking like a winner.

So in the heat of Tuesday afternoon I planted out rows of : –

  • Fat Lazy Blonde
  • Cimaron
  • De Pierre Benite
  • Drunken Woman
  • Black Seeded Simpson
  • Gotte Jaune D’Or
  • Sanguine Ameliore
  • Gentilina
  • Blonde Du Cazzard
