Lettuce Grow and Enjoy!
Lettuce Rows Homegrown Lettuce

Lettuce has come a long way since crisp iceberg was the only variety available in the grocery store. Now there are so many types of lettuce, it’s hard to choose just one – and you don’t have to if you grow what you like best! Generally considered a cool-season crop, lettuce and other salad greens can be grown in the ground or in a container, where you can harvest them as cuttings. But before you grow, there's just a bit you need to know!
Mixed Lettuces Grow a Salad Mix

You don’t need a tiller, hoe and lots of land to be a vegetable gardener. Many veggies lend themselves nicely to container gardening, including a variety of leafy greens. Sun, water, soil and seed are all you need to enjoy fresh salad greens at every meal. And they can be quite ornamental at the same time that they’re edible! Decorate your patio – and then your dinner table – by planting a color- and textured-filled container garden of mixed salad greens.
