AG Summer Crisp

I started a Summer Crisp Lettuce a week ago(April 30).

I understand that it is not a cut n come again variety, but it will be interesting to try a different variety for a change because I eat so much lettuce.

I am chomping as I type. I

I am chomping as I type. I like the texture of the leaves...sort of a cross between a leaf lettuce and a romaine. In other words, the leaves are not as limp as salad greens or other loose leaf lettuces.

Taste: I like the taste which is rather mild compaired to the bitterness of some others. (although I happen to like the bitter greens taste).

I am having it along with tuna which is mixed with herbs from my AG.

I am dining like a queen today.

I harvested the entire project and it gave me a medium bowl full after I chopped the leaves....significantly less when I harvest the loose leaf like Simpson...and they also come up again. But it is a great project.

In its place I started 2 types of CHoy(or shall I say 2 seed brands).

Would I plant the Magenta Summer Crisp again..DEFINITELY.

Day 16 and the SS6 Summer

Day 16 and the SS6 Summer Crisp project is doing excellently for me. The one one in the Classic in the kitchen was a failure and has been replaced with something else.

I have 2 summer crisp lettuce

I have 2 summer crisp lettuce projects going . One is in the kitchen and hates the heat. The leaves look weak. So this week I am going to turn it into a Dragoon Lettuce project. The dragoons seem to be a hardier seed.

In another room is the SS6 Crisp project and it is doing just fine in there.

Thanks. I have been trying

Thanks. I have been trying out several types this year. My all time fave USED to be Simpson, but that was untill I discovered Dragoon this year. I love playing around with lettuce in the AG because it is a quick grow while others are taking their time like peppers, petunias and toms.

Summer crisp works great as a

Summer crisp works great as a cut-outer-leaves variety. I think you'll like it. Best of luck!
