Lettuce Penitentiary

My lettuce looks like it’s being held in a penitentiary.  The woven wire that guards it is really not meant to keep the lettuce from escaping, but rather to keep the groundhogs and rabbits from destroying it. It’s a bit elaborate, I’ll admit, but it has kept the lettuce safe.

The brown plastic “pot” I’m using for the lettuce used to contain a sweet mineral lick for our cows.  These huge plastic containers are great for all kinds of uses, like catching rain water from the barn roofs.

Here is an aerial view of the lettuce.  In the center is a broccoli plant I started from seed.
