Outstanding lettuce blend

I'm a small grower in zone 7A. I grow 28 different varieties of all sorts of lettuces. This lofty mix is so unbelievably beautiful, but also tasty. I'm able to have 2 full harvests before the quality goes down a little bit. I grow this in spring and again in fall. It's always a customer favorite. No bitterness in the blend and very tasty.

Good producer

I enjoy growing leaf lettuce for the variety of colors and textures. However, I keep trying to find the "perfect" mixture as some mixtures include a spicy flavor that's not to our liking. I was very pleased with this variety. Germination rate was excellent and it grew quickly. We live in west-central MN and I planted this lettuce in late April in raised beds. We ate lettuce until mid-June. I pulled it then because we were leaving for three weeks and I knew the temps would be too high by July and it would bolt. However, I planted it again in mid-August and as of this writing in late September we are enjoying beautiful leaf lettuce and will until the first frost. Note: Some seed companies (maybe Territorial, too, not sure) advertise both a spring and a fall lettuce. In the past, I bought both, only to discover that the fall mix was just the same as my spring lettuce! Now I plant the spring mix in the spring, save some of the seed and plant it again for fall lettuce.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of direct seeding.

• Lettuce performs best in cool weather, 60-70°F, and grows in a wide range of soil types
• Plant as early as soil can be worked
• For extended harvest, plant every 2-3 weeks and choose heat-tolerant varieties for summer
• Lettuce seed can be sown every month from February—October
• A cold frame and cold-hardy varieties can stretch the spring and fall growing season into the winter months
• Apply 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 10 row feet, and 1 inch of compost
• 1 gram of seed will sow 30 row feet
• Consistent, even watering is critical for best results

Direct Sowing
• Use row cover to improve germination and prevent soil crusting
• As soon as 2-3 true leaves have formed, thin loose-leaf types to 10-14 inches apart; icebergs, butterheads, and romaines to 12-16 inches apart

• Start indoors 4-6 weeks before anticipated transplant date

Insects & Diseases
• Common pests: Aphids and slugs
• Pest control: Strong spray of water for aphids or applications of Pyrethrin or Neem oil, baits, traps, or Cabbage Collars for slugs

Harvest & Storage
• While picking individual leaves helps extend the season somewhat, all eventually become bitter as they begin to bolt

What is pelleted seed?
Seed that has been coated with a clay-based material to form a larger, round shape. This makes planting by hand or mechanical seeder easier and allows for more controlled sowing of small seeds such as carrots or lettuce. All pelleted seed has a National Organic Program (NOP) approved coating.
For best results, store pelleted seed in an air-tight container and use within one season.

What is seed tape?
Seed tapes are perfectly straight rows of precisely spaced crops. No more having to thin seedlings! This biodegradable tape will plant a row 5 meters (16 feet, 5 inches) long. Simply lay it in a furrow and cover with a light layer of sifted compost or soil, water and wait. Save yourself a heap of planting time with these popular vegetable and herb staples.
