Baby Lettuce Mix - 15 Tender Varieties
Leaf lettuce is a cool weather plant, perfect for growing in spring or fall when the days are short. Scatter the seeds anywhere, a planter outside your back door, an empty patch in the garden, anywhere the soil is fluffy and moist. You can even plant a lettuce lawn.
This is a mix of a dozen tasty, colorful varieties meant to be harvested when young. In a few weeks, you can step outside and snip enough baby leaves to make a salad.
Scatter the seeds in a shallow planter or your garden, cover with 1/4" of fine soil and keep moist. Thin the plants to several inches apart (and eat the thinnings.)
When plants are about 4"-5" tall, harvest begins. Snip off the outermost leaves and leave the growing center intact. The plants will keep producing new ones.
