Lettuce is proving to be a challenge. Out of the first 9 seed we started, 8 are planted out and one remains because it is tiny. Out of the second 3, 2 were planted out and one never came up. Out of the third 3, one was planted out and 2 are still too small. The lettuce was very fragile to plant out and does not look happy in the garden.

Edit June 6
Lettuce perked up and did rather well after all. Got all of it transplanted out of the seedling garden and most of it thrived. My 3 yr old decided to help today, however, and harvested a whole square instead of a few leaves.
