Lettuce is one of our favorite garden greens because it is far superior—in both taste and vitamin A content—to the store-bought alternative! Plant in the spring, starting two weeks before frost. In fall, start sowing again eight weeks before the fall frost.
Lettuce is cool-season crop that grows best in the spring and fall in most regions. It’s a great leafy green to grow because it grows quickly, produces for a long time, and isn’t very demanding as long as you keep it sufficiently watered. Plus, it grows great in raised beds and containers, making it ideal for small spaces, too.
