This row of 12 plants of romaine lettuce were planted as seedlings in early May. Usually there is some bug damage. The five that have been pulled to date are perfect with no bug damage. To preserve for a longer period after pulling, the root is kept in water in the kitchen. I have been told that picking the leaves from the plant in the garden allows the plant to grow and one gets fresh lettuce as required. I have never tried this method.
