Growing Lettuce :

For a fall crop put in cool soil in August by moistening the ground and covering it with a straw.

Make sure the soil stays moist with plenty of rich organic matter. & P.H of 6.0

Test the soil, (Purchase kit) Fertilize& line according to test.


In Spring began setting out lettuce plants about 1 month before the last frost grows between temp range of (45-80 degrees) F. Hot weather makes the lettuce bitter.

Cold weather freezes it.

The students at Phoenix Planted Lettuce to put into our salad bars for lunch. The lettuce comes out real nice over here. The Lettuce is fresh, crunchy, and delicious!
