I love the look of lettuce that has bolted. Except for the fact that it means no more lettuce, the triple decker lettuce structure it forms makes me smile. Crazy little lettuce.
Original crop planted on November 25. From far to near: lettuce, beets, bok choy (far box); chillies, tomatoes (near box).
Everybody’s happy and jumping out of the vegie boxes (the caterpillars are happy too – see prev post). I’ve been giving my poor lime tree some TLC too (you can see it in the far pot) and it’s got lots of new growth after a good dose of fertiliser and oiling the leaves to get rid of the bugs.
From left to right: Garlic, bok choy, cos lettuce, beetroot, leeks.
