Red lettuce is a big no from me. never had a tasty red variety yet. Sorry Steve, it's all about taste not appearance for me.
little gem is great. I also grow varieties like Saladdin and Lakeland for the summer
how about growing baby beetroot there too Marc? There you go, you have your red colouring. Baby turnips too. And some decent spring onions ....not those wishy washy white lisbon but Guardsman or Laser that remain upright.
Important to move your lettuce around a bit though....regularly replanting the same spot with lettuce throughout the growing season is likely to attract pest, disease and reducing vigour.
