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.

Growing Lamb's Lettuce

Select bunches with no yellow leaves. Smaller, younger leaves ones will be sweeter than more mature ones.
