Lettuce ‘Summer Mix’
There are lettuces for all seasons. A lettuce variety that is sweet & mild in the Winter may become bitter or bolt in the heat of Summer. The ‘Summer Mix’ consists of a blend of more heat tolerant lettuces but unless you live right at the coast, you will get the best results by providing a bit of afternoon shade. Grow in good garden soil & keep evenly watered. You can pick off individual leaves or harvest the whole lettuce when needed, but it is always recommended to replant often for a long season of salad greens.
