Heads of lettuce are popping up at the Benton-Stephens Community Garden. Hopefully, spring will soon follow.
According to the National Gardening Association, lettuce is one of the first crops that can be planted. Gardeners can begin to harvest lettuce six to eight weeks before the last frost date and set them out three weeks after. Lettuce requires little sunlight to harvest, and grows best in cool temperatures and moist soil conditions.
As winter comes to a close, sow some lettuce seeds and prepare for what looks to be a great spring.
