I just harvested my first crop of lettuce this past weekend- and I planted from seeds. It’s possible with lettuce, peas, spinach etc.... or if you started your seeds indoors (like I did with herbs) just don’t let me see her get a tomato this soon!
Seems about right, actually. I planted lettuce and peas in mid-April in SE PA, not much further north - about 2-3 weeks later than normal because of a cold and wet spring. I've harvested lettuce over the last couple of weeks, but mainly as thinnings, and the peas just started blooming a week ago. There hasn't been a lot of sun and it's been pretty cool and wet, so crops are developing slowly this year - my tomato and pepper plants are runts so far.
I’m surprised Michelle didn’t harvest the next morning. After all the MSM has made deities of the Obamas.
Not to mention that it is Romaine Lettuce and has bolted due to the warm weather. I live in Norhtern VA and threw mine in the compost pile on Monday.
You’re right. There’s nothing strange about harvesting peas and lettuce now. I grew lettuce from seed, and I harvested a month ago. The few heads of lettuce I neglected to harvest are beginning to bolt, as it’s too hot. I’ve grown snap peas other years, and they are one of the earlier things I harvested. I’m technically even in a cooler zone, I believe, but I’m guessing it doesn’t heat up as quickly in DC. If she had ripe tomatoes and eggplant, I might think something was up, but this is much ado about nothing.
I’m sure there’s a gardener on staff that takes care of this for Michelle, in any case.
