Leaf lettuce and marigolds growing all bright and pretty in a large flower pot on the patio. This is my first time growing lettuce. It is unbelievable how easy it grows. I should have done this a long time ago. It is a cool weather crop and reseeds itself if you let it get taller than 12 inches.
But if you harvest it when it is between 6 -11 inches tall, it will grow again right where it is. Since it prefers cool weather, moving it into partial shade can help prolong its production when the weather starts to get too warm. It is just fun that I actually had something for the table that was so easy! I look forward to planting again in the fall for a late cool crop.
It is an endless salad bowl. It is like free food and tastes so good, especially when you can just step out the back door to get. It doesn’t get any fresher than that. Happy gardening. ~
