Organic Lettuce: Leaf - Valerie Planting Instructions:
Valerie Lettuce grows best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade. Plant seeds in early spring or fall. Plant 8 - 12" apart and 1/8" below the soil surface in rows spaced 12 - 18" apart. Keep the plants well-watered during dry periods. Lettuce is shallow-rooted, so it is important to avoid disturbing the soil around the plants when you weed. Make sure the plants get watered deeply at least once a week, and more frequently during periods of drought. Add a layer of compost or clean straw to help the soil retain moisture.

Organic Lettuce: Leaf - Valerie Harvesting Instructions:
Lettuce will be at its peak quality if harvested early rather than late. If the lettuce is left in the ground for too long, it becomes bitter and tough. Plan to harvest in the morning or evening when the leaves are crisp, sweet, and full of moisture. Freshly harvested lettuce may be stored for 5 to 7 days in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
