SUMMARY Planted Lettuce and Potatoes. ( K L M ) …. not the airline More Digging and Planting We managed to get a few more things in the ground. Around the Cabbage and Broccoli we have added some Baby Leaf lettuce, these are protected by the netting and should grow pretty quickly coming to crop well before the cabbages and broccoli.
