Post Where is the lettuce?
Hi,

Just got my veggie patch started with seedlings 10 days ago.

Everything has sprouted except the lettuce and rocket!

They're missing! From the Gardenate site: http://www.gardenate.com/?zone=2 it says Rocket will be the first thing to harvest that I've planted but it hasn't even sprouted yet, while the peas / onions / pak choy etc are growing like wildfire.

Oh the leeks and peppermint haven't sprouted yet either, but I suspect they take longer than most... and the peppermint may be out of season, I'm not sure (Is this the same as Mint on Gardenate?)

Yup, done soon after I posted that, no sprouts yet though.... but I guess it takes more than three days.

With lettuce being such small seeds they can be vulnerable to drying out at the wrong time, or ants carrying them away, or other such things. Glad you got the second lot sprouting.
