Lettuce greens are so easy to grow, so nutritious, and so delicious picked fresh from the garden, that everyone should grow them. Grow lettuce in the vegetable garden, tuck it into flowerbeds, or cultivate it in containers.
With regular watering, shade from hot sun, and succession planting, you can enjoy home-grown lettuce almost year-round in much of the country. From baby leaf lettuce to big, crisp heads.
Planting And Care:
You should be able to sow additional seeds every two weeks for a continuous harvest throughout the growing season
Fertilize 3 weeks after transplanting
Lettuce prefers soil that is high in humus, with plenty of compost and a steady supply of nitrogen to keep if growing fast
Use organic alfalfa meal or a slow-release fertilizer
To plant a fall crop, create cool soil in August by moistening the ground and covering it with a bale of straw
A week later, the soil under the bale will be about 10 degrees F (6 degrees C) cooler than the rest of the garden
Sow a three foot row of lettuce seeds every couple of weeks just rotate the straw bale around the garden
Make sure soil remains moist but is well-drained
An organic mulch will help conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and keep soil temperatures cool throughout the warmer months
Lettuce will tell you when it needs water
Just look at it
If the leaves are wilting, sprinkle them anytime to cool them off and slow down the transpiration rate
Weed by hand if necessary, but be careful of plant roots: They are shallow
Planning your garden so that lettuce will be in the shade of taller plants, such as tomatoes or sweet corn, in the heat of the summer, may reduce bolting
