Post  ashort Wed 27 Apr 2011, 12:51 pm

So I want to make another 4x4 or 4x6 bed just for salad greens for the summer but need some advice on what to plant since the heat (100deg not uncommmon in late June / July) will be here before we know it... The bed will be in an area on the east side of the house that will give it morning sun and afternoon shade.

Any varieties that others have had success with in similar situations?

ashort, Neil Sperry, the spokesman for TX gardens and growing, says the best producing lettuce down here is the Black-seeded Simpson. I'm having fabulous results so far with mine. Mel reccomended the Oak Leaf lettuce, but I'm not sure how it grows down here. Also try http://cooksgarden.com/vegetables/lettuce/, they have a seasonal selection and I'm eyeballing the summer mix.

My black-seeded Simpson has bolted already, here in southern Louisiana. I didn't get a single leaf. Sad

It was the first of mine to bolt at the end of the winter. But all of my varieties were "bolt resistant" ones, so I guess it probably does better than ones I didn't plant, lol.

This website offers some suggestions on heat resistant varieties. I was thinking about giving it a try, but it is unusually hot this year so I think I will just wait till fall.

Simpson's Elite. Has NEVER bolted on me in 3 years. Keep it trimmed early and often. Mine has handled triple digit stuff before, but I watered 2 and 3 times a day to get it through.....and was in afternoon shade, too.

You can also plant SE lettuce in pretty shady areas if you decide the east side of your house is still too intense in July and August.

Don't forget the chard for summer salads, either. Wink
