We rely on our organic garden to provide us with delicious varieties of fresh lettuce from spring through late fall. This is accomplished with three easy techniques.

  1. Row covers are used for frost protection in early spring and late fall.
  2. Successive plantings are made a couple of weeks apart for a continuous supply for the kitchen.
  3. Varieties tolerant of cold are planted as the first and last crops, while those "slow to bolt" are planted in late spring and summer.

Lettuce in a garden is often very pretty. We like to plant it at the edges and corners of our beds where they are easily viewed by passersby. Lettuce may also be planted in the part-shade areas of the garden.
