The lettuce harvests are mega at the moment!!  

But we have to make the most of it, as I find it is too hot up here in Northland in Summer to grow lettuce, it just tends to bolt.  I have tried growing it in part shade and under other crops and shade cloth etc, but it just doesn't seem to do well.  

I have also tried varieties that are suppose to be more resistant to heat and bolting, but with not much luck.

This season I will try again though, in hope that when I have an influx of cucumbers and tomatoes I might just have some lettuce to harvest too!!

Has anyone in Northland had any luck growing lettuce in Summer?? Any tips or hints??
