6 Month Old Romaine Lettuce Still Going Strong

After 6 months in the cold frame the Romaine Lettuce is starting to take off with the warmer spring temperatures. In the coldest winter months the 5 inch plants just went into a dormant state and pretty much didn't grow at all. The cold frame acted as hibernation chamber for the lettuce greens. This helps get a big jump start in the spring since the plants are already a third of the way grown.

  1. WOW - that's incredible! I just got an old window and some pieces of wood and I'm attempting to put together a cold frame myself. Seeing your lettuces is very inspiring! How great to be able to extend the growing season on both ends!
