Flaming June is Flaming Cold

It's been raining for the last two days, today is overcast and cold. Flaming June it feels more like flaming Autumn or early Winter out there. The temperature gauge is telling me it's 10.3 decrees C but with the wind chill factor it feels much colder and even I could only last out there without a coat for 5 minutes.

Lettuce don't normally like it too hot, and so far I have not grown any lettuce. NOTE to Self:- Get some lettuce in during March next year and sow at 3 to 4 week intervals. 

So now that the cold frame is back in play and as it's lunch time and not raining, I have filled 20 small pots that stand in a capillary matting tray with some Tantan Crisp 'romaine' lettuce with three seeds per pot. according to the back of the pack they are; "A slightly larger Little Gem with its similarly renowned taste. The leaves are more 'bubbled' giving it a distinctive appearance, Matures about 11 weeks from sowing, with delicious , crisp, 'romaine' hearts which stand well and withstand hot summer weather"

Here's hoping we do get some hot Summer weather soon for them to withstand!
