Lamb Lettuce

Feature image

Back in June, I mentioned building a wireless temperature sensor that I wanted to use for growing veggies. I also mentioned that I wanted to get started with hydroponics. Well, it's now October, and while I've had all the bits and pieces ready, I haven't made a start on this yet.

I mentioned this on Mastodon today, and asked for suggestions for plants to grow in the autumn. Tulsi mentioned greens and pointed me in the direction of Japanese greens, like mizuna. I never knew so many options existed. Cathal Garvey, who some of you may know from building his own bio-lab in his bedroom, mentioned that he is growing lamb lettuce. I picked some seeds up from the garden centre this afternoon, and it will be an interesting experiment to see how they respond to being grown hydroponically.
