One last cabbage photo from the fall 2018 garden, as well as a nice photo of romaine lettuce. I started all of these from seed, and the lettuce really performed well. You can either pull the entire bunch or snip about an inch from the bottom and more leaves will grow. Perfect for salads and sandwiches.

cabbage and romaine - nov 2016

These photos illustrate the layout of my 2 cabbage and romaine gardens.  Perhaps a tad too close for comfort, but I was overly excited with my planting.  However, cabbage and romaine get on well together as they mature.

romaine lettuce - nov 2016

Green romaine lettuce grows well in the Fall and Winter months.  Individual leaves can be snipped rather than pulling out the entire plant until eventually the stalk starts to shoot up and flower. The leaves then become a bit bitter so time to pull and reseed or replant a starter pod.

This post shows green and red romaine lettuce maturing throughout Oct 2015.  There are two ways to harvest romaine: 1) clip only the lettuce leaves that you will eat at any given time and 2) pull out the entire head of lettuce for large consumption.  I go with the former, as the plant continues to produce leaves for a lengthy period until it finally gives in and begins to "bolt", which I'll capture and post to the pf blog.
