Time to Plant: Lettuces

Wednesday, March 02, 2011


You can plant lettuces as soon as the ground thaws, and up to 8 weeks before the last frost date. That means now! Hurray! I planted my first lettuces tonight - yugoslavian red butter lettuce, red romaine, green butter, and red and green romaine. You can sow seeds directly into the ground, 1/4 inch deep, seeds spaced about one inch apart, and rows 10 - 12 inches apart. Pat down the dirt over your seeds, water and fertilize, and get excited about an early spring crop!
