Sow: Indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost 1/8’’ deep

Harvest: When leaves throughout the growing season or harvest the whole head when mature

Lettuce is cool-season crop that grows well in the spring and fall in most regions. Lettuce seedlings will even tolerate a light frost. Temperatures between 45°F and 65°F are ideal. (Source: almanac)

Because lettuce grows quickly, the best approach is to plant a small amount at a time, staggering your plantings.

Seeds produced: Le Noyau farms
