There goes an entire crop

The CDC warning on Romaine lettuce came at a bad time. This year’s first batch of Romaine in Yuma (and environs) is about 10 inches high and won’t be harvested for two weeks. Obviously, the area is not responsible for the recent outbreak, nonetheless the damage has been done. I expect to see to see about a third of the fields nearby being plowed under tomorrow and this weekend. Once the Romaine is exterminated, other crops will go in.

Don’t expect US Romaine this winter.
