Sowing Early Lettuce

We're having a very mild March so far. Tuesday raised the yearly high temperature a little higher reaching 15.6°C or 60.1°F.

It's very tempting to start sowing seeds in earnest but there's still a chance of some cold weather arriving so I'm waiting to see what happens. Wednesday may well be to be another mild day but it looks like it will turn cooler towards the weekend.

I did decide to sow a few lettuce seeds which I'm leaving in the greenhouse to germinate.
There's hundreds of seeds in a packet so it won't be a great loss if this early sowing succumbs to some bad weather. If they grow okay then I'll pot them on and they will eventually be planted out in our raised bed at home.
