Lettuce Give Thanks
Over 100 lettuce plants are already in and protected under row covers so we should have an early harvest of great Italian lettuce varieties. Lettuce, spinach and other cool weather crops can go in now if they are protected with row covers should there be a surprise frost. The general rule of thumb for planting in the northeast is to wait until Memorial Day. I just got my soil tested again, something every gardener should do each year. My compost has been churning away now for awhile and it won't be long before I can add the decayed but rich nutrients to my garden soil. If you want great Italian seed varieties for your garden, try ordering them on from Seeds from Italy.
