This cool weather crop will germinate at temperatures just above 40°F, which makes it one of the first vegetables from the garden to the table each spring.
Plant outdoors 6 weeks before your last frost or as soon as soil can be worked. The top 8 inches of soil should be fertile, with plenty of organic matter. Add compost and a well-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 5 to 15 days. Sow every two weeks until late spring and then again in late summer for a continuous harvest.
When plants are 3 inches tall, thin seedlings to 10 inches apart. Mulch to keep soil cool and moist. Lettuce needs at least 1 inch of water each week. Side-dress with compost or a balanced fertilizer one month after planting, taking care not to disturb the shallow roots.
Outer leaves can be picked after 25 days or the entire plant can be harvested after 50 days.
