START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In cool early spring weather, sow seeds in finely worked soil in full sun. Shake seeds from the palm of your hand, broadcasting them about 1/2 in. apart over the entire seedbed or in wide rows, and cover lightly and evenly  with 1/4 in. of fine soil. Firm soil gently and water in with a fine spray. Keep seedbed evenly moist. Make small successive sowings until summer weather turns hot for a constant supply. Plant again in late summer for fall harvesting. Or, space seedlings 8 to 10 in. apart and let them mature to full size heads.

GROWING NOTES

Lettuce thrives in mild weather with consistent moisture. To extend the sowing season into hot weather, erect a canopy of loosely woven shade cloth over the lettuce bed. Birds are attracted to tender young seedlings so protect them if necessary.

HARVEST AND USE

To harvest by the 'cut and come again" method, wait until plants are 4 to 5 in. tall. Cut as much as you need, using scissors to sheer off a patch of leaves 1 to 2 in. above the soil level. Water well and fertilize lightly and plants will regrow for several more cuttings. Dress with extra virgin olive oil and a mild fruit or balsamic vinegar to enjoy the sweet flavors and juicy textures of these delicate young leaves at their best.
