For the 2nd year in a row, March was colder in March than February, creating a delayed spring.  Although I got my lettuce and other greens planted in early March, it’s slow to germinate. Which may mean it bolts sooner when the weather suddenly turns hot.  If there’s no Aug-Sept drought, I do better with a fall garden of greens, but often it’s just too dry for good germination… only so much time and money I’m willing to spend watering, when I can just buy it at the farmers market. That’s one reason I mostly grow things I can’t easily buy, or that are high value. This year, I planted much of my lettuce in containers, and I’ll see if moving them to the north side of the house into the shade helps it last longer.
