I started my greens first, especially the cold weather ones like Spinach and Corn Salad.
- Spinach, Bloomsdale Longstanding - oldest plants are getting their second set of leaves, we’ll see how “longstanding” it is if it gets much hotter.
- Dutch Corn Salad or Mache - isn’t growing as fast as the spinach
- Butterhead lettuce “speckles” - even the first leaves have little red speckles!
- Bib Butterhead lettuce
- Red Sails Leaf Lettuce
- Henderson’s Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce - slow to come up but good germination
- Red Romaine
- Petit Rouge Leaf lettuce
The Spinach and Corn Salad are Baker Creek 2012 and the Red Romaine and Petit Rouge are Baker Creek 2011. I think the red romaine was the “free gift.” The other lettuce seeds came from Mom and could be a year or two old.
