A quick question for gardening friends who live in "cooler" climates.
Regarding Ruffled or Plain Green Leaf lettuce (or similar varieties):
how cool/cold can the temperatures be for it to grow?
Obviously we don't grow it in Florida, however, our Autumn and Winter temperatures are often perfect for Greens, Broccoli, Cabbage and Romaine...
... as long as there are no severe frosts.
If winter is mild again this year, we are thinking of growing some lettuce in a small area, rather than planting the entire garden area in rye grass seed, and allowing the nitrogen to seep into the ground.
Thanks for your help,
