I've written a lot about growing your own lettuce right through the hottest months of the summer. Here's a picture of a nice mix of salad greens that's been grown in temperatures of 95+ for the last 3 weeks. If you do nothing to your lettuce in this weather two things will happen. First, it stops growing-almost in hibernation stage. Second, the plant will turn bitter. I'm working on my second ebook in which this will be the subject-how to grow great tasting lettuce in hot weather. It's almost complete and should be around 20-25 pages in length. I've had great success doing this for many years using 4 or 5 techniques which I'll be sharing. All with nice looking picture along the way. This thing about paying $2.50 or more for an organically grown head of lettuce doesn't have to be. I'll show you how to do it for pennies, and how to do it right through temperatures that otherwise make it virtually impossible to do so. It will be very cheap-$3.99. That's a small price to pay to learn how to do it right. I've found some good practical advice on the internet about this, but I've been able to add 2 or 3 additional techniques that I do to make it even more likely that you'll produce a non-bitter tasting head of lettuce during the summer months. I hope you'll give it a look when it's here.
