Lettuce patch in the ground

We managed to get a new lettuce patch in the ground today. Took a total of 3 hours start to finish (well.. the drip lines were already laid out).     Not sure how many plants this will be,  but there is a total of 8 rows of 120 yards each, so about 1000 yards of plants.  We doubled planted these (twice as thick as recommended)  since this is for animal feed.

Hopefully the weather will hold and we will get it all harvested before cold weather sets in. Usually lettuce is ok to plant late since it keeps growing with cooler weather as long as it doesnt freeze.

This leaves one more patch for planting in the summer spot... and then time to start on the winter garden (roots and hearty plant)
