Salad Days Forever?

It seems many weeks since I started some lettuce seedlings in the greenhouse.

They have been so slow to form anything more than about two sets of leaves that I begin to wonder if I chose a suitable variety.

Throwing caution to the winds I just took some packets of mixed salad seeds and hardy annuals and sowed broadcast in between the more established plants around the garden. The soil has taken such a long time to warm up that I'm probably not too late.

Clarkia pulchella, a feisty little white flowering gem, should flower by September, I hope...
