Home-grown lettuce is far superior—in both taste and vitamin A content—to the store-bought alternative! Here’s how to plant, grow, and harvest lettuce in your garden.

Because lettuce grows quickly, the best approach is to plant a small amount at a time, staggering your plantings. Find more tips for planting delicious lettuce here.
