Days to maturity are calculated from date of direct seeding.

• Lettuce performs best in cool weather, 60-70°F, and grows in a wide range of soil types
• Plant as early as soil can be worked
• For extended harvest, plant every 2-3 weeks and choose heat tolerant varieties for summer
• Lettuce seed can be sown every month from February—October
• A cold frame and cold-hardy varieties can stretch the spring and fall growing season into the winter months
• Apply 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 10 row feet, and 1 inch of compost
• 1 gram of seed will sow 30 row feet
• Consistent, even watering is critical for best results

Direct Sowing
• Use row cover to improve germination and prevent soil crusting
• As soon as 2-3 true leaves have formed, thin loose-leaf types to 10-14 inches apart; icebergs, butterheads, and romaines to 12-16 inches apart

• Start indoors 4-6 weeks before anticipated transplant date

Insects & Diseases
Common pests: Aphids and slugs
Pest control: Strong spray of water for aphids or applications of Pyrethrin or Neem oil, baits, traps, or Cabbage Collars for slugs

Harvest & Storage
• While picking individual leaves helps extend the season somewhat, all eventually become bitter as they begin to bolt

What is pelleted seed?
Seed that has been coated with a clay-based material to form a larger, round shape. This makes planting by hand or mechanical seeder easier and allows for more controlled sowing of small seeds such as carrots or lettuce. All pelleted seed has a National Organic Program (NOP) approved coating.

Productive and Tasty!

Direct seeded this blend early April in Seattle. Used it as a "cut and come again" crop -- picking the outer leaves while small every other day. A 2'x1' intensively planted section has produced enough for a large salad every day from late May through early August! I had trouble consuming it all, it was that productive. Will definitely plant next year!

I tried two methods of planting. 1 batch indoor that I transplanted outdoors, and 1 batch direct seed at the same time of transplanting. Both methods worked well and I received big beautiful lettuce leaves bursting out of the ground. They were not at all bitter until we got some 90 degree weather. I cut them down to the ground, and the new leaves are tasty again. My friends and coworkers were thrilled to see the speckled lettuce on bright green leaves--it really is unique. Quick growing and tasty heirloom. What more can you ask for?

Ordered two packets of this, and wound up with zero plants. Not one even germinated. Nearby peas, collards, and broccoli are fine, so it wasnt the soil.

What a delightful mesclun! It contains butter head, leaf, and cos varieties with colors ranging from light green, to deep rust, and even a speckled one. The lettuce is sweet and tasty. It has also been slow to bolt, despite the 90 degree weather in June, and a slow start from a cold and snowy April.
