I was cleaning up my veggie garden before I tilled the grounds. I found a lot of lettuce lurking among the weeds, so I transplanted them next to my metal shop wall for warmth.

being a seedsaver, the lettuce always escapes to an extent b4 we can harvest the bulk of the seed, gotten to where lettuce comes up evrywhere, as scattered as the lambs quarter…Good job transplanting it!

I love it when I get “volunteers”. I guess we don’t call them weeds because we want them. I am getting lettuce weeds now, and I am quite happy for it! I cannot think of a more pleasing weed.

Three years ago when I started on the front door gardens that were never tended, ripping and tearing out the mess I couldnt figure why I occasionally got a “numbing sensation”

FIL came over and told me I cut through his wires that he put out there, they supply electricity to the coops and lights and were only buried a couple of inches deep, no cover…......lieing there waiting to electrocute some one.

Nice score on the lettuce

-- just one more rock, and the garden is done ; )

great find. This year my kids decided to destroy the garden while helping daddy garden. It was still fun.
