Our first 90F (32C) day is predicted to hit tomorrow. Today will be hot too. Now some of you might not consider 90F to be all that hot, but up here near the ocean, we just don't get hot. Humid yes, but in the 100s? Not so much. This year I've been trying to keep my lettuce going into the summer. The first batch of lettuce was finished and ripped out. I'm currently harvesting the second. But the third is only half sized right now. And I figured it would be really wilting in the heat. Or turning bitter.
The end of the bed has the fourth sowing of lettuce. It is struggling as I let it get too dry recently. I hope it lives. Now it is time to get wave five started. But not today. I think I'll try direct seeding some at the end of the onion bed. It gets a lot of shade so might be a good little lettuce nursery. Or maybe wave five will be started with my fall brassicas. Those need to get seeded very soon too. And since I'll have my grow lights on, I might as well do it all at once.
