Our fields are still full, so please, come help yourselves.
So far so good with the winter lettuce blankets. We've had some chilly weather and the lettuce is holding it's own. The brown tips on the romaine are where the lettuce is taller and touching the blankets when frost is on the blankets. It doesn't effect the taste, but I do trim off the brown when making salad for company.
