- To grow lettuce in the colder season here are a few tips.
- Don’t try to grow the heads to full size, instead harvest leaves but don’t disturb the growing tip.
- When you want to harvest a full head leave a 1” to 2” stump, there’s a good possibility a new head will grow.
- Growing under a row cover or cold frame offers protection from severe cold.
- Be aware of slugs. Baby slugs are voracious and begin emerging in early winter sometimes sooner.
