Urban gardening 2010: Lettuce (May and June)

The lettuce has been slowly and steadily growing strong- at first they were these thin, straggly greenish white strands, but as the weeks have gone on, they have grown into crisp, sweet leaves of lettuce!  

Mid May
Late May

Early June

We have a variety of different lettuces which are planted closely together, and as we keep cutting them down, they keep growing back! They've been perfect for side salads with a few tomatoes, topped with a little shaved parm or picked fresh to add some crunch to a sandwich!
