Shit Spring is Here


#1

Gotta get on the garden, already running late, should have some lettuce starts ready to put out today but don’t have shit.


#2

Go ahead and start yer lettuce now. There’ll be another freeze or two before it’s time to put em out.


#3

lettuce can take a little bit of a freeze, I did throw some seeds out around valentines day but they probably got washed away.


#4

February = spring?

And they say there is no such thing as global warming.


#5

You and I live in CA, so definitely for us, yeah.


#6

Well, yeah, but Billdo lives in the Bible Belt.


#7

Not may flowers type spring but definitely lettuce/spinach weather


#8

I once spilled a packet of lettuce seeds in my garden in November by accident. Four months and a subzero bitter winter later, up they all came, and by the end of March, I was giving away bushels of the stuff.

Lettuce is tougher than it looks.


#9

I’ve had some survive some a mild winter, it just died back, then when it started to warm up a little it took right off again.


#10

Got a little bit of lettuce and spinach that survived the winter and has started growing back… and of course kale… I think it’s only the Oak Leaf variety of lettuce that ever makes it through the winter for me…


#11

You didn’t start your new plantings yet, did ya?


#12

yeah started a tray of lettuce the other day…


#13

It’s 79 right now. I think we’re skipping over spring.


#14

straight to fire season?


#15

Probably.
