Organic Lettuce: Leaf - Sunset Planting Instructions:

Direct sow Sunset Leaf Lettuce seeds in early spring or fall. Sow the seeds 1/8 inch deep and 1" apart in rows 10 to 14" apart. Cover the seeds lightly and firm the soil gently. Once 2 to 3 true leaves appear, thin the plants to 16 to 18" apart. Keep the plants well-watered during dry periods. Because lettuce is shallow-rooted, it is important to avoid disturbing the soil around the plants when weeding. The plants need to be watered deeply at least once a week. Use a layer of mulch such as compost or clean straw to help soil retain moisture.

Organic Lettuce: Leaf - Sunset Harvesting Instructions:

During the warmer seasons, lettuce will stay in prime eating condition for about 3 weeks. Picking individual leaves helps to prolong this window somewhat, but lettuce will eventually become tough and bitter as the plants begin to bolt. Try to harvest in the morning or evening. This time is when the leaves are most crisp, sweet, and full of moisture. Freshly harvested lettuce can be stored in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days in a plastic bag.
