START SEEDS OUTDOORS
In cool, early spring weather, sow seeds in finely worked soil in full sun. Sow seeds 1/4 in. deep and 1 in. apart in rows 6 to 8 in. apart or broadcast thinly in beds and cover lightly. Tend carefully and Keep evenly moist. Gradually thin seedlings to stand 10 to 12 in. apart to allow heads to mature. Make several sowings a few weeks apart until summer weather turns hot for a constantly maturing supply. Plant again in late summer for fall harvesting.
Lettuce thrives best in cool conditions with consistent moisture. Weed, water and thin carefully for best quality heads. if birds are attracted to young seedlings, cover them with floating row covers or netting.
HARVEST AND USE
Savor earliest thinnings in spring salads. Then harvest by cutting entire mature heads or picking outside leaves after plants are well established. To extend planting into hotter weather, sow new seeds in containers in light shade. Transplant seedlings into the garden, shading for a few days and harvest heads while still young. Tasty French Batavian lettuces form heavy rosettes of big crunchy leaves that tolerate both hot and cold weather well. Enjoy them with any kind of dressing from a simple vinaigrette to a rich, creamy Gorgonzola. Their crispy texture is also perfect in sandwiches or tacos.
