First lettuce have gone in

After another long hot day, I managed to put in the first lettuce plants at the allotment. A nice grouping of a dozen little green gem lettuce plants that have gone in next to the three groups of beetroot plants I set previously.

I can foresee that my only problem with these plants will be making sure they are watered consistently… I’ve not seen any snails or slugs on the allotment for a long time, so I expect they will not be an issue. All I need to remember is to visit and water the plants regularly.
