Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Again

I first made these in June 2007 and love them but the chocolate was a little soft and didn't really harden, even in the fridge. After reviewing a few comments, I found out that if you half the amount of the heavy cream the chocolate will harden in the fridge. These were perfect!

Butterhead lettuce

April 2010

May 2010

How do you know your butterhead lettuce is ready to harvest? I started these from seed in early March, transplanted them in early April, and now it's May. It looks like lettuce but not the lettuce I see at the store that has more leaves, the head is fuller. Are mine not ready or is homegrown lettuce different than what you find in the store?
