It rained today and Bill took a picture for me that perfectly shows the right color for picking lettuce in the heat of the summer. So I added the following as an Addedum to the post of July 16th. I’ll delete this post after a week or so. It was such a perfect example of color I wanted you to know that I had added it to the previous post.
Addendum added – July 21, 2012
The picture below was taken after we finally got rain on July 21, 2012. The stalk toppled from the rain. The top leaves still show more of a blue — which indicates too bitter to eat.
Yesterday (July 20th) – before the rain — the big bottom leaves were dull and more blue. After the rain they had the look of color you’d see in spring lettuce. The picture shows perfectly the right color to pick and enjoy in a salad —- even at the end of July!
