Lettuce growing in my raised bed has provided day after day of delicious salads. I planted romaine, bibb and mesculn mix. The only issue I’ve had this season is whiteflies. They started on a fall tomato plant and quickly spread to the lettuce. I am hoping the colder weather will help to erradicate them. I’m not really interested in spraying the leaves with anything at this point. My solution – I pick the leaves and I wash them thoroughly in the kitchen sink. So far so good.
Here I’ve got a mixed planting of lettuce and carrots. It was not intentional, but I’ve decided to let the experiment run it’s course.
