Earthbox Lettuce Day 43

Written by Chris on December 6th, 2009

Lettuce has reached the point of harvest. Have yet to clip any leaves and try it, but should be doing so soon. I have heard you can clip leaves here and there and it will “keep going”. I have never grown lettuce before so not sure.

Lettuce was directly-seeded into the Earthbox on 10/17; this picture was taken on 11/29, so day 43 after sowing the seeds. Varieties are Black Seeded Simpson, Lollo Rossa and Salad Bowl.
