Lettuce can be started indoors to get an earlier harvest. Plant seeds into soil trays or pots at 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart. Seeds should germinate in 7-14. You can plant your lettuce 6-8 inches apart in full sun or partial shade. Lettuce prefers to be grown in cool weather and will be mature in 55 days. To direct seed lettuce, either plant in rows or sow a thick bed for "cut-and-come-again" plantings. Sow a section every few weeks for a continuous supply.
