Yesterday peppers, today lettuces!

The plan is for these to go into the polytunnel to provide salad leaves early in the spring before it’s warm enough to grow them outside. Quite possibly they’ll need clearing once it’s time to put tomatoes and peppers into the polytunnel.

I sowed two or three seeds per cell to thin to a single plant, eight cells of each, of Webbs Wonderful, Lollo Rossa, Red Little Gem, Grenoble Red (aka Rouge Grenobloise), Reine des Glaces, Multigreen 3, some “mixed leaves” left over from last year and wild rocket. They’ll all stay in the greenhouse to germinate and I’ll thin them when it looks like they’re starting to develop a true leaf.
