I also got some lettuce transplants from my parents over the weekend when they thinned their lettuce rows. I planted some more lettuce peas from seed even though I'm not confident that there is enough time to get much from them. I having nothing to lose though as the seeds are my parents leftovers (thanks for letting me raid your seed stash!) and I had extra Supersoil.
I now have to wear a mask while working with dry soil. Probably also with wet soil but the dry stuff is more dangerous as it blows around a lot more. There are fungi that live in dirt that aren't pleasant for lungs so it's recommended to both water the soil (if it's dry) and wear a mask. While I'm not super concerned about stuff in Supersoil, I still picked up some masks and strapped one on while planting everything. It's hot and annoying but it doesn't hurt to be cautious. The last thing I need is a fungal infection because I wanted a pepper from the mystery plant.
|It's mostly likely a pepper but what kind? Fingers crossed on hot pepper.|
|Peas and lettuce. I remain hopeful.|
|The transplanted lettuce. A few died but the rest are holding on.|
