Worried about Wind-blown Lettuce

Post  Joe Tucker on 3/28/2010, 9:13 pm

I put out some lettuce on saturday afternoon and then the whole rest of saturday and all day today it was pretty windy (30 mph gusts). This is supposed to continue for another 36 hours.

Several of my lettuce plants are looking a little wind-blown.

Is this something I should be concerned about? Will they 'straighten up' on their own?

Sorry if this is a silly question - I'm new to this.

just keep em watered.

If your wind gusts are only 30mph you'll be ok. Just keep those babies watered good. If you notice some edge curl just block the wind so your babies don't dry out. We get "just a lil wind" out here on the Llano Estacado and my lettuce is still doing ok.
