HEAD LETTUCE: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Use Jiffy 7’s or a flat and inserts with a good soil substitute, like Berger BM-2. Place seeds not over 1/4″ deep. Germinate at room temperature. Head lettuce seeds may also be sown outdoors like leaf lettuce. For nice big heads space plants 6-8″ apart. Harvest, cut head of lettuce off after they form, just above roots. Use fresh. LEAF TYPES: Plant in early spring as soon as soil can be tilled. Place seeds 1/4″ deep, 1″ apart. For a constant supply, sow lettuce every 2 weeks for as long as weather stays cool. Harvest, cut leaf lettuce, 1-2″ above ground. Use fresh in salads, wilted lettuce or in sandwiches. For leaf and head lettuce, you will need 1/2 oz seed per 100′ row
