Lettuce – Gourmet Mesclun Mix

Letuca sativa

This tasty blend looks great in both the garden and in the salad bowl.  A blend of kales, mustards, and spicy lettuces create a gourmet mix that bursts with flavor.

Suggested planting requirements:  Tender lettuces have weak root systems so plant in fertile soil and consistent watering is important to ensure productive growth.  On our farm, we transplant out our lettuce starts by first starting the seeds in the greenhouse. Once we plant in the ground, we make sure the ground is evenly moist and sometimes when warm weather is drying the soil too quickly, we put up shade cloth. Shade cloth is a great way to extend a lettuce growing season!    Need help starting your seeds? Check out our seed starting videos on Youtube.

Growing Recommendations:  Seeds can be directly planted into the soil or transplanted out. During winter and cooler months, lettuce can be grown in full sun. During the warmer summer months, grow lettuce in the dappled shade of another plant like a tomato.  This is a common practice and hence the old wives tale “Tomatoes love lettuce!”

Harvesting & Storage: Mixes may be utilized as a cut and come again crop.  Simply cut plant 2” away from the base to allow regrowth. Cuttings may be kept moist in a salad spinner for several days.
