Little Gem Disaster

Week 5
The Little Gem lettuce have been a disaster in the Gro-bag. It looks like just 2 of the seeds I planted might provide something edible, otherwise I fear that's it. Disappointing, but I think I may be somewhat to blame by going on holiday during the hottest week of the year. I'll try again next year but maybe in shadier conditions (and I don't mean down a dark alley or behind the bike-sheds).
The Samish baby-leaf spinach however (on the right) is a huge success. It's not the dark-green leaf that I like when I've bought in the supermarkets but it sure as hell tastes good and is 100% chemical free AND not a greenfly in sight.
