{how to plant} 
Lettuce can be sown as soon as the soil can be worked in early spring, sow a fall crop of lettuce in late July or early August for harvest throughout the early fall. Lettuce will begin bolting with the increase of summer temperatures. Scatter tiny seeds into a shallow furrow, 1/8" deep. Cover with loose soil and tamp down. Plants should be thinned with scissors until spacing is one plant every 9".
