Winter Urban Garden: All the lettuce!

IMG_5098Dateline: 2016-01-10

The holidays have come and gone, but the urban garden is not forgotten. While we were gone for Christmas and New Years, the plants have survived. Fortunately for the green things it’s continued to be a wet winter in San Francisco. Unfortunately for said plants, it’s also been quite cold. We’ve had a few days of frost warnings and several more that were cold, but not quite cold enough for the warnings. Even though I know we should have, nothing was done to cover/protect the GreenStalk tower-o-plants. It will probably be detrimental to the long term viability of some of our crop, but as you can see from the photo – things are looking great. While the strawberry is looking a little worse for the wear, all of the lettuce type crops are growing gang buster. A couple of leaves were removed for an impromptu snack as well. No further details today, but I expect our next WUG post will be salad based.
