Lettuce Planting

Asked April 4, 2019, 9:22 AM EDT

I have 2 large barrels of dirt on south side of house.. When can I plant lettuce seeds in these containers...the earth of course warms more quickly so I am thinking I can start earlier than suggested. any ideas.

Hennepin County Minnesota lettuce

Sure give it a try, lettuce seed is cheap and spring greens delicious. If temps go below freezing the lettuce will need to be covered. If temps drop below 26F you will probably have to start over. Peas can be planted now too.
