Just because the weather outside stinks, doesn’t mean you have to stop gardening all together. I started this flat of Italian basil back on October 30th, and all the sudden it’s gone gangbusters. Right now the basil is about 5-inches high, and we have been using basil leaves here and there in a few dinner dishes. Not to shabby for gardening in December if you ask me.
2 weeks ago I started some butterhead lettuce indoors. I guess I didn’t think the whole thing through because now I’m not sure what I’m suppose to do with it. Should I re-pot the lettuce and move it out to the greenhouse, or just leave it in the flat and pick the leaves off a little at a time?
The temps are suppose to dip into the 30′s this weekend so I’m not too sure if I should be moving it outside or not. What do you think? Should I just thin it out and grow a few heads under the grow lights, or move the lettuce outside to the greenhouse?
I could you your advise.
