Fall Lettuces

This past Spring was not a good season for my lettuces.  I am hoping to have better luck this Fall but I struggle with planting times.  I don't want to get it in too early while its too hot but it also needs more time to grow as the days get shorter.

The arugula is coming in really well.  However the couple of days of 90 degree weather we had among the cooler days has made is super spicy.  Almost too spicy to eat.

 The other lettuces that were planted at the same time had spotty germination and are coming in much slower.

I just planted mache and spinach in the front bed.  It has yet to germinate but I am hoping to get lettuces into the winter and try overwintering spinach.
