    @palmerballer1 Black Seeded Simpson is a cut-and-come again leaf lettuce versus a head lettuce. So, you cut all the leaves off about 1-2 inches above ground and in a few weeks new leaves will emerge ready for harvest. If it was a head lettuce then after harvesting the head the plant would be done with no more heads to harvest. – Mark

    probably within the next few weeks; waiting for early crops (lettuce, peas, garlic etc.) to grow a little more.

    Thanks Nic. If fact, I do have blueberry shrubs planted in my yard. One day, I will do a video on the different fruit I have growing. I must admit, when I first bought the blueberry shrubs I actually had intended to buy highboy blueberry bushes. Growing up, we had these and they were over 6 feet tall and loaded with blueberries. Well, my 2 blueberry shrubs, which are probably 5 years old, do produce but only a handful at a time and are about 2 feet tall. Better suited for ornamental use.
