That's a long time to be in a mini block.25 days ago I sowed Crawford Estates and Winter Marvel lettuce seed, with some of each variety in 3/4" mini soil blocks and some in larger blocks that were about 1 1/2".
I'm glad to see your results. Last year I started a bunch of lettuce in a new root-pruning tray put out by Bootstrap Farmer (maybe 72 cells?) and was not impressed with the results. They grew to a certain point and then just stopped. I was suspecting that they'd been held in the cells too long -- we'd had a pretty bad cold spell, so they didn't get set out when expected. Now I'm wondering if it is the amount of soil OR is it the root-pruning qualities of the soil blocks AND the cells I was using. hmmm. 🤔🧐🤓
