Simpson Elite and Rouge d’Hiver were the two lettuce varieties that lasted the longest. The Simpson Elite turned bitter just last week and was fed to the chickens.
Kale too is still going strong with relatively little pest damage other than a few slugs and snails on the lower leaves. The chickens seem to love Kale and the snail disappeared quickly.
I will allow the mature greens to produce as long as they can and will transplant some of the fall greens around them.
