I'm starting to play my garden for next year (I know it's July! but it will take me all winter to decide what I want to do). Because I am planning on trying some garlic overwinter I thought I'd also try some lettuce.
What are the benefits of over-wintering lettuce? versus starting it in the spring?
(I planted mid-April and got edible lettuce first week of June, but was still really small)
What should I cover the lettuce with?
We get allot of snow here, am I really going to be successful?
I'm zone 5a and I've read it can be done but I'm a little sceptical
