Backyard Gardener: Winter lettuce in the home garden

Lettuce varieties vary in color, flavor, and leaf shape. All photos were taken after a night with a low temperature of 21 degrees. Larger plants were planted on Aug. 21, 2020. ‘Goldrush’ is shown in on the upper left. ‘Red Velvet’ is surrounded by ‘Australian Yellowleaf’ on lower left. ‘Yugoslavian Red’ is shown on the upper right. Smaller, thinned ‘Australian Yellowleaf’ seedlings were planted on Oct. 10, 2020 (lower right). (Jeff Schalau, University of Arizona/Courtesy)
