LETTUCE

Plant as early as the ground can be worked, thin for best head development on heading varieties.  Leaf varieties may be cut and they will regrow.  Do not pull up entire plant.  For best germination on lettuces do not plant very deep.  Approximately 750 to  1000 seeds/pkt. unless otherwise noted. UPDATED FOR 2021
