Pinetree Lettuce Mix (Begin harvesting in 40 Days)

Also available in larger size packets here 

We have been experimenting with various Mesclun Mixes from France and Italy and you will find these in the greens section. We see a number of advantages to mixing greens: you get a variety of colors, textures, tastes and maturation times from the same planting. This mix has a uniquely American twist, however; they are all leaf lettuces and all sweet varieties. The mix will contain most of the loose-leaf varieties in the catalog and nearly a dozen others. This has become our best selling item and we continue to receive hundreds of compliments on it.

PLANTING

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-75 degrees F. Soil above 75 degrees F inhibits germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼ inch deep

Outside Sowing: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 50 degrees F. Sow 1” apart, thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want, baby to full heads. Keep soil moist during germination. Sow every 2-3 weeks for a longer harvest period. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens.

Starting Indoors:  3-4 weeks before planting outsideSow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thinning to one per cell/pot. Provide 60-70 degrees F soil temperatures. Transplant out, 8-12” apart in rows 12” apart.

How much does a packet plant: 25 foot single row  

Harvest: Cut whole heads at base or snipe off individual leaves.  

Tips: Lettuce needs fertile soil for optimum growth. Work in compost or well rotted manure into your soil before planting. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

Almost ready to eat

I started these indoors - some to grow in the windowsill and some to transplant in the garden. All my seeds germinated and grew quickly! I haven’t quite gotten to taste yet.

Inspired

If I recall, this was your first mix and I was ecstatic. I have used it every year since and have been satisfied to see you add other mixes. My harvest season is extended, salads are colorful and flavorful, and all for a reasonable price! Thank you from the bottom of my gardener's heart.
