salad days INDEED
what are the basic soil / water / nutrient requirements for growing a fair to quality head of lettuce?
i planted one of those packets 'mescula mix' or something to that effect, and it is incredibly bitter. so much so that it kinda burns my poor mouth
and it is not as though it has been harvested all summer (last year's lettuce became bitter after 3-4 trimmings)
the other standard green variety at the beginning of the leafy veg row is a little bitter too but not nearly as bad. the spinach at the end of the row is just fine.
what is going on? etc
much appreciated / josh
