Growing Lettuce

One of the vegetables I've had the most success in growing is lettuce. This is an Asian baby leaf mesclun salad mix from Renee's Garden I planted in my herb garden this past Spring. As they got a little bigger, I thinned them, using some in salads but mostly eating straight from the bed! They provided me with salad greens for months, with an amazing variety of flavors. My favorites are arugula and the buttery varieties, though the latter wilts quickly and seems to need the most water. I will be replanting again as soon as the weather cools down some. After this long, hot drought, it can't come quickly enough for me!
