    The reason the iceberg lettuce isn't balling up is because the heat. It will taste the same just won't ball up.

    Everything is looking really good. I think the lettuce will start to ball naturally once it grows a little more, if I remember right. It's been a long time since we did iceberg lettuce though.

    The only thing i know about strawberries is that you do not let the plant fruit the first year pull off the flowers so it can make a good root system and it will come back next year and produce more fruit. As far as the lettuce that is what mine looks like to no ball maybe it is our heat? Good luck with the watermelon i know it needs a lot of water and i have not been able to grow it yet. Okra and squash are pretty easy to grow just harvest them as soon as you think you can and they both keep growing all the way in to fall. Everything looks sooo good you guys are doing amazing! Much love keep up the great work.

    The garden looks great. I miss greens, in the spring we used to eat a lot of salads, my favorite it cucumbers and tomatoes with fresh ranch. Good job.

    It looks beautiful! I agree, begin harvesting your spinach and your herbs when needed. If this heat trend continues, chances are the spinach will bolt early, so don’t be shy. My bok choy bolted already, so I gotta pull mine and try again in fall. Total flop.  

    The heads will form on your lettuce soon, be patient. However, lettuce is a cool weather crop, so don’t be surprised if the heat stunts them. If you find that they are struggling or beginning to taste bitter, go ahead and harvest the entire plant. Better to have it young than not at all. I didn’t get any lettuce this Spring even though I seeded in early February.

    Your summer plants should do well. Tips on okra: they get big. Plan to stake them. Also, harvest when pods are small… 2-3”. They become almost inedible if too large. It is actually the flower pod that you’ll be harvesting, so get it young and often.

    Squash is easy. It takes care of itself. Harvest early when small and often. Watermelon get long vines, so expect that. Sugar Baby watermelons? My bush green beans are just coming up, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the 95 degree heat stays always for another few weeks. Last year, my pole beans never set fruit.. too hot by the time they reached maturity.

    You’re doing great!! Keep giving it your love and attention and harvest as soon as you can. Especially the cooler weather veggies as the end of May is about all they can take heat wise.

    When you up-pot tomatoes, bury the stems right up to the lowest leaves. The more stem in the soil, the more roots they'll grow. ❤
