Lettuce in the Snow

IMG_5702

I’ve been nursing these seedlings all winter in the cold frame and at last they are beginning to take off.  I planted them too late last fall to have the winter harvest I had hoped for but soon we’ll have early spring lettuce to enjoy.  I lost two plants over the winter but we’ve had some pretty cold spells, temps in the single digits, so I’m very happy with them.  On those extremely cold nights I put in a gallon jug of hot water and on nights below 20º, I covered the cold frame with a movers quilt.
