Harvesting Lettuce from your Vertical Garden

Fresh lettuce growing on our Vertical Garden last winter.

Our  vertical garden is full of fresh produce ready to harvest! We will be harvesting and replanting our second crop for this growing season. Linda and I have been eating from our vertical gardens for several months now. Going out daily and picking fresh greens to make our morning Green Shake or for fresh salads. We have kale , collard, and chard  and   a variety of lettuce plants that we have been eating from since December! It is now the last week of June and the heat is beginning to make the lettuce and chard bolt and the collard leaves too tough. So it’s time to replace them with new starts. Seven months of eating from each plant. That’s remarkable!

LettuceĀ  is one our staple vegetables. We eat one or two salads daily. Our vertical gardens keep us supplied with the lettuce we need year round. This short video shows you how to harvest your lettuce.
