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
Dark Lollo Rossa
Dark Lollo Rossa- 55 days- another lettuce best suited for cool times as it gets bitter during warm times. Very dark red curly leaves that are excellent in mixes for color and texture. Start picking when young. I find this one best for an August planting to mature in the cool days of October. Pkt. $2.00
BIBB OR BUTTERHEAD LETTUCE
Sandhill Lettuce Mix
Sandhill Lettuce Mix- We are concerned with the continuous decline of availability of certain varieties so we are trying to develop an efficient way to produce our own lettuce seed here. It was easy to do in my youthful days in Idaho but a challenge here with the rabbits and summer rainfall destroying the ripening seed. This a mix of about 20 varieties from our summer experimentation.. Pkt. $2.00 Certified Organic Seed. UNAVAILABLE FOR 2021 the Derecho flattened all plants as they were ripe with seed.
