  1. Hm, I usually put newspapers on top of my mesclun and keep them moist, keeps the birds from eating the seeds. Maybe I’ll try this and see if it works. Yes, bolting lettuce is annoying, but they won’t grow in too much shade either…

  2. Sigh. I pulled my first lettuce for salad last night when i saw that it was starting to elongate. mercifully, it was still sweet and flavorful, but now I know that I’d better start harvesting the others and keeping an eagle eye on the others! Still so worth growing one’s own.
