Organic Lettuce Leaf, Royal Oakleaf Planting Instructions:
Directly plant organic lettuce seeds in early spring or fall. Sow seeds 1/8" deep, 1" apart in rows 12-18" apart. You might find it easier to use tweezers for planting. Also, consider protecting seeds with wire fencing and starting them in small containers- especially in rabbit and deer-abundant areas. Thin new sprouts after 2 or 3 leaves grow to 6-10". You can also lightly broadcast seed in a patch instead of a row. Unless there is regular rainfall, lettuce plants must be thoroughly watered at least once a week and more frequently during periods of drought. Mulch with a layer of compost or clean straw to help the soil retain moisture.

Organic Royal Oakleaf Harvesting Instructions:
For best quality, pick lettuce early rather than late in the growing season, as lettuce allowed to grow too long becomes bitter and tough. Try to harvest in the morning or evening when the leaves are crisp, sweet, and full of moisture. Cut from the bottom of the head, twist off the base, and then thoroughly wash all leaves. Spin in a salad spinner. Store for 5-7 days in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
