Your fresh lettuces, herbs, and small root vegetables are ready to be harvested! I started growing at the Veggie Patch a little over a month ago. Quick crops like lettuces and radishes make great spring crops that thrive in cooler weather. I have succession planted all the crops so there will be a continual supply all season long. More lettuce varieties will become available within the next couple weeks. A large 9 inch plastic clam shell will be filled with mixed greens or head lettuces.
