Our luscious blend of lettuces, perfect for baby or large leaf salad mixes. We love to harvest baby leaves as we thin, letting some plants grow to full heads. The lettuces in Organic Fruition Salad Bowl Mix will thrive in soil as well as raised beds and container gardens, nourishing us in spring, summer and ’til the snow flies! Under hoops and floating row cover, we’re easily enjoying this mix well into December when sown in September.

Planting Method: Direct Sow or Transplant
To Direct Sow: As soon as soil can be worked, can be sown thru til early fall. Sow 20 seeds per foot in rows, wider rows or entire carpets in containers. Sow every 3 weeks for continual harvest. We love to sow baby salad greens around young tomatoes and other long-season crops that are initially small, harvesting greens for the first ~6 weeks before the tomato is huge.
For Transplanting (full size only): Indoors, sow 2 seeds/cell early spring & thin to 1. Harden off & transplant around last frost. Succession sow every 3 weeks until early fall.
