It’s hot. Damn hot. And it’s just gonna’ get hotter.
The lettuce? It’s unhappy. (So are the kittens and humans, for that matter.) Anyhoo, it’s time to yank the spring mix and replace them with the summer mix.
Traditional gardening wisdom says that lettuce is a spring crop. And it is, but POD’s had decent luck planting heat-resistant varieties that provide yields throughout most of the summer. It’s best to position your lettuce container in an area that receives limited mid-day sun. Water daily. Maybe even twice daily. And that, dear gardeners, should keep you in salad all summer long.
