Lettuce Harvest

I harvested some lettuce for the Riverside Food Cooperative saturday morning.   It will be placed in the crop boxes for the Riverside Food Cooperative members.    I harvested buttercruch, red leaf, green leaf, and romaine lettuce.  Here a couple pictures of the green leaf and red leaf after harvesting and washing.  That's it for the lettuce for this year.  It really only does well in the winter time and the weather is getting warmer.   There have been 2-3 day of 85 degree weather and that much heat burn the leaves.  It will also start to bolt to produce seed when it gets to hot, rather than form heads.
