We've had four tomatoes from the garden so far. Very exciting as we
usually don't get any until July! The herbs are growing very well. The
problem is the lettuce.
Yesterday I went out and cut some for a salad with dinner. Into the
salad spinner for a soak and YUCK. Thousands upon thousands of little
green bugs. Aphids I suspect. After three soaks and a couple very
thorough rinsings I was still seeing little bugs. Darn things are
everywhere. We had spinach salad instead ;-)
Should I just dig it up and chalk it up to a lesson learned? Any
suggestions for growing lettuce with fewer bugs in the future?
The bugs aren't on anything else in the garden that I could see. But
boy they love that lettuce.
