Romaine handles the heat of summer better than other varieties, but needs a long cool season to form the crunchy, pale yellow-green heads within. If you can’t wait, pick a few outer leaves first.
For best flavor and texture, plant outdoors 6 weeks before your last frost or as soon as soil can be worked. The top 6 inches of soil should be fertile, with plenty of organic matter. Add compost and a balanced, granular fertilizer if needed.
Sow the tiny lettuce seeds 1/8 inch deep and 2 inches apart, with 18 inches of space between rows. Cover lightly with soil and keep moist. Plants emerge in 3 to 15 days.
When plants are 2 inches tall, thin seedlings to 8 inches apart and mulch to keep soil cool and moist. Lettuce needs at least 1 inch of water a week. In dry weather, water the root zone early in the day. Side-dress twice, at 3 and 5 weeks with well-rotted compost or a balanced, granular fertilizer.
Romaine will grow 8 inches high and wide. Harvest entire plants after 70 days, or pick the outer leaves as needed.
