Yes, I'm starting them in small pots and a few every two weeks. Now would be the time to start for zone 5 I think - about 2 weeks behind me. This week will be my second batch. They are red and green leaf lettuce.

Once the danger of frost is past, I'll transplant these to the garden and then so directly in the garden every two weeks. I mentioned to her two rows cut into four sections and rotating two weeks - harvest and replant. She said that's correct.

Question: are you talking about dong lettuce in containers? I am starting some this week too. I am in zone 5b.

IT all begins with YOU..... Plant the seeds and get growing healthy!

Can't find me - I am always in the garden:

Well it's good to know I'm on the right track! Visited with a local Mennonite woman the other day and she said she started some lettuce seeds last week and also tomato indoors.

I had started my lettuce but not the tomato. She said she'll do some lettuce every two weeks until planting season and then sow directly in the garden. That was my plan so I'm getting the idea and got the timing right!
