Planting: Almost any fairly good garden soil that is well drained and not excessively acid is suitable for lettuce. The only real secret about growing fine plants are to keep them uncrowded and growing rapidly. Rapid growth demands an abundance of moisture plus an abundance of natural plant nutrients. Mature compost humus or well-rotted manure should be dug in along the row before the seed is sown.
Harvesting: loose - leaf types should be cut off at ground level and the roots left in the soil. Later in the season the roots will send new leaves for a second crop.
