How to grow lettuce
Lettuce can be grown in a variety of ways, including in a garden, in pots, or in a hydroponic system. Choose a location with well-drained soil and partial shade. Lettuce can be planted by sowing seeds or transplanting baby seedlings. Keep the soil moist, fertilize, and watch out for pests. Harvest the lettuce leaves or whole heads when they are young and tender. Lettuce is a cool-season crop and grows best in spring or fall.
