> I'm curious: what varities of lettuce are people seeding right now?
Here in central Virginia, zone 6b, i'm sowing mostly 
Batavians such as Cardinale, Sierra, Nevada, Pablo, 
Magenta, Batavia Blonde, Kagraner Sommer. Also a 
few iceberg: Summertime, Sun Devil. Anuenue is an 
OK but small iceberg. De Morges Braun (lovely pink 
and green soft-leaved lettuce). Loma (small lettuce 
with green indented leaves). Also some Romaine: 
Kalura, (a big head from Johnny's), Apollo. I buy 
seeds from Fedco (yes, they're closed till the winter), 
Johnny's and Southern Exposure.
