Lettuce In October

I cannot believe I am harvesting lettuce in October.  I'm hoping the cold frame protects it for awhile.  A front is headed our way.  I'm expecting it to be too chilly to do much in the garden for the next few days.  We'll see how the patio containers do with the predicted below freezing temperatures.


Yes, there is one rouge lettuce plant on the right side of the cold frame.  Must have dropped a seed.

  1. I've never been home when our first killing freezes hit, but I've always wanted to try keeping the lettuce/spinach growing as long as possible under a cold frame. I know in the spring, I've grown things through snows and temps as low as zero. Good Luck!--perhaps you can serve lettuce for Thanksgiving!!

  2. That is amazing that you still have that and it's almost the end of the month even. Well worth keeping some going this late each year.

  3. Your lettuce looks great! I didn't have much luck with late sowing this year; your cold frame looks like the perfect way to keep things growing for awhile. The weather is supposed to turn for us, too, on Friday; hopefully, I'll have all my bulbs planted by then.

  4. I'll bet that nothing beats the taste of fresh lettuce from your garden in October. I hope the cold frame keeps doing its job and patio containers make it through the cold spell.

  8. We hit 25 last night. .and it stayed around 26 degrees until after 9am. I took photos of my sister's family and it was upper 30's lower 40's this morning. .the kids were pretty grumpy about it!! No heat in my greenhouse yet. .so hoping that all will be well in there yet tonight. .as we are to get about that low again. It's nice to be on to hobbies other than gardening for a while. .enjoy your time!

  9. Nothing is better than fresh lettuce out of your own garden. What a great cold frame! Beautiful plants.

    I need to drain the hoses for the winter this afternoon.
