How Do I Grow Lettuce?
There are two ways to grow lettuce: as a baby green or a full head.
If you are growing lettuce as a baby leaf, you can directly sow your seeds outside just after the last frost. The seeds are planted close together, about 4 per square-foot. Try seeding every few weeks for a continued harvest all season long.
If you would like to grow head lettuce, such as romaine, start your seeds indoors 4-8 weeks before last frost. Use a seedling tray and plant one seed per cell. Keep planting new transplants every other week until early summer. Transplant them outside as soon as the threat of frost has passed. During summer plant heat resistant varieties, pick a shady spot or try using a shade cover.
Keep in mind that lettuce seeds are very small and will need to be planted close to the soils surface. You'll need to just barely cover the seeds with a fine textured planting mix.
Viola, calendula, beets, carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, dill, Celery, garlic, onions, radish, spinach, squash, and strawberries.
For baby leaf lettuce, harvest once the plant reaches 4-6" you can start harvesting. Try using the "cut and come again" harvesting technique, this is where you cut the entire plant down to 1" and wait for regrowth.
If you are growing head lettuce, you can pick the outer leaves as you need them. If you would like to harvest the entire head, wait until the head feels firm, before or just after it begins to open at the top. Use a knife and cut the entire head at the base, where it meets the soil.
Try to harvest your lettuce in the morning, as the heat of the day can cause it to taste more bitter.
The biggest reason most gardens fail... is water.
LifeSpace Gardens overcome this challenge by emulating the water tables found in all the most abundant natural environments. This technique is know as sub-irrigation and creates the ideal growing conditions for long term sustainability, convenience and growing success.

LifeSpace Wood Finishes
LifeSpace Gardens Guarantee
Your LifeSpace Garden is crafted out of Western Red Cedar, harvested from the forests of British Columbia. The natural characteristics and high oil content of this beautiful wood makes it ideal to use outside and withstand the seasonal elements. Cedar, like all natural materials, will season uniquely and accrue it own natural patina and character over time. Small cracks, silvering, knot holes and weathering are all part of this natural process. However, with proper care, your garden can last a lifetime.
The LifeSpace Guarantee takes this natural process to mind. The wood will age, but the craftsmanship will remain. We guarantee the structural integrity of your LifeSpace Garden & the functioning of your GardenWell sub-irrigation system.
