http://xrl.us/nd7g Some Romain lettuce was picked today 14 June 2006 Zone 5. It is almost perfect. There are 10 plants and the size of each is astonishing. There is only minor bug damage on two or three plants. No sign of earwigs, which have often been the bane of growing romain lettuce. Many people get turned off when the earwigs fall out while washing the vegetable, and the earwigs leave brown marks on the inner areas, sort of spoilings one's appetite for Caesar salad. These plants went through two fairly heavy nights of frost with no damage, truly a cold weather crop. Durgan.
