Lettuce done, now what?

Post by Dan Kais » Fri, 26 Jun 1998 04:00:00



My lettuce patch is all eaten (or bolted) here in New Jersey. Now that it is
mid-June, what can I plant in the empty space? Any suggestions appreciated.

How about some New Zealand spinach? (It's not really spinach, but another
similar plant that is very heat-tolerant.)

Or you could try black-eyed peas (except that some people in New Jersey
won't eat them!), or, if you can find started transplants, a hot-weather
crop like eggplants, peppers, or okra (see comment under black-eyed peas
... ).

What is next to the bolted lettuce?
I always plant by a companion planting guide.

You could try buckwheat as a green manure crop and turn it under in time for
a fall crop of turnips or broccoli.
