Lettuce Sprout

Salad is on its way.

Looking forward to lots of salads in a few weeks from my second planting of lettuce and greens. Even in this heat wave they enthusiastically sprouted in three days, a real record! Even though the moon that day was slipping into last quarter, possibly the least favorable condition for planting anything, it was also right smack in the middle of Capricorn, a nice, wet, nurturing sign. It might also have been the compost and deep regular watering. Maybe everything all together, but it’s the height of the growing season and everything has been sprouting in record time.
