First Sowing

I’ve made our first sowing of the year, a batch of Lactuca sativa ‘Relic’ (lettuce) out in the polytunnel. With temperatures still dropping below freezing at night it would be foolhardy to do this outdoors but the polytunnel is pleasantly warmer than the open air and so it is worth trying an early start.

This variety promises narrow purple leaves and, all things being equal, I might even have some early thinnings to try later this month and a decent crop going by about mid-April.
