Lettuce prefers cool weather. Select a location with full sun, or partial shade in hot areas. Sow in early spring or fall, or in winter in mild climates. Keep soil evenly moist for best growth. Thin regularly. Lettuce does not like to be crowded.
Harvest by cutting no more than 1/3 of a single plant’s leaves at one time at soil level for continuous regrowth.
