Maintaing production

After harvesting the red salad bowl lettuce the system has been replanted with Vivian and Slo-Bolt lettuce.

From experience I have learned to moisten the expanded clay pellets prior to transplanting the seedlings. Also, I pour a small amount of nutrient through the pot immediately after placing the seedling into the pot. This procedure prevents wilting caused by being transplanted, and the seedlings recover quickly.

This batch should be ready to begin picking in three to four weeks.
