Planting Lamb's Lettuce
Sow lambs lettuce directly into your soil in late August or early September. Timing is important; sow too early and it will develop mildew or too late and it's not established before the cold weather hits. Create a shallow groove in the soil about 1/2 inch deep; as you sprinkle the seeds, aim for 1/2 inch between them. Cover with soil and water well. Once established, thin your seedlings to 3 inches between plants.
