Planting Update - New Red Fire Leaf Lettuce and Red Ace Beets

I haven't planted any seedling for about 3 months as I am busy transplanting and tending to the started plants.  I have 45 trays of started plants but need to start planting again so I have a steady supply of vegetables.  
I planted New Red Fire Leaf lettuce.  Its a compact leaf lettuce with a nice red and green.  Its slow to bolt and will be ready to harvest in about 45 days.

Here is a stock image of the mature plant

I also planted some Red Ace hybrid seeds.  This is a hybrid of Dark detroit.  It resist bolting in the head and has a very flavorful beet.
