Garden report: lettuce begin

Finally, something to report: The lettuce is going in!

I've been slowly planting my containers with lettuce and other salad greens. My garden soil still (after all these years) has too much clay to grow greens, so I put them in containers and use them as "microgreens."

This year's crop: lettuce, arugula and 2 "blends."

In addition, I have a bonus: volunteer lettuce. Had a plant last year that I allowed to go to seed, and it apparently dropped seeds all over my front garden.

I'm not planting anything there for the moment, so I'll let it go and see how much of a crop I get.
