Lettuce Biscia Salad Bowl :
Before you plant your lettuce seeds, make sure the soil is prepared. It should be loose and drain well so it’s moist without staying soggy. To keep the soil fertile, feed it with organic matter about one week before you seed or transplant. Since the seed is so small, a well-tilled seedbed is essential. Large clods will reduce germination.
- Direct sowing is recommended as soon as the ground can be worked. Plant seeds ½ inch deep. Snow won’t hurt them, but a desiccating cold wind will.
- If you want an earliest crop, however, you may start seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before last spring frost date for an earlier crop. Harden off seedlings for about one week, and transplant outside between 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after last spring frost.
- Your rows of plants should be 12 to 15 inches across.
- Cover the seeds with ¼ to ½ inch of soil.
- Water thoroughly at time of transplant.
- Consider planting rows of chives or garlic between your lettuce to control aphids.
