Plant your different lettuce in hanging baskets. It's easy to care for, easy to harvest, and easy to move in or out of sun. You can raise all your salad greens hanging on the patio.

Nice idea, thanks! Do you happen to know whether these plants would continue to grow if moved indoors for the cold weather?

I would think they would thrive indoors if you could give them lots of natural light (sunlight or grow lamps), and keep the temperature moderate.

Plant 4 or 5 different lettuce's in your lettuce bed then you can have a variety of greens to eat. When cutting you lettuce off, just break off the leaves and leave the roots growing. It will produce more lettuce for you to eat. If the lettuce has dead leaves on it, just snip them off and it will grow again. Keep your lettuce watered if the weather is dry.

I have been growing lettuce for 3 months now and they have been doing really well. All the lettuce plants, because they were planted at the same time, are starting to flower. Can I plant these again and how do I do it? I am not sure of the variety of lettuce, I think it is a mignonette.

Sure you can. Make sure the plant is completely dry before picking the seeds. We just leave ours in the garden over the winter, and in the spring, many little seedlings appear weeks before we till and plant. We have three varieties, and they all do it. I'm in Zone 4-5, if this helps. We sometimes transplant them into rows and have lettuce for weeks.

Once the lettuce flowers, you wait util the flowers start to die, then pull off the flower, you will find seeds. This is how we get seeds for next season. Plus we know that the type we are using works well for our area. Happy salads.

I all depends on where you live. Lettuce likes cool weather. You might be able to get another crop before the first frost and if not then wait until early spring.

Choose quick-maturing varieties that will produce a crop within weeks of sowing. In the fall, use row covers to extend the season and protect crops from frost.
