A minimum of 10 different organic leaf lettuces artfully arranged in a 14” plastic bowl. As you pick young leaves, plants will re-grow, giving you fresh gourmet salads for a minimum of two months (I've had reports of bowls lasting through to first frost). My special soil blend needs no additional fertilizing - just keep the bowl watered and enjoy!
For best results, while temperatures are still reasonably cool, bowl should be placed in full sun. As the heat of summer moves in (above 75º), relocate the bowl to partial shade and even full shade or a garage, if temperatures soar.
Lettuces are 'cool season' crop and are genetically programmed to 'bolt' (i.e. - go to seed) when temperatures are consistently elevated. That is why I recommend moving the bowl into complete shade, if necessary.
Keeping the bowl evenly moist at all times will also extend the life of the plants. Lettuce is comprised almost entirely of water, if allowed to dry out it will get bitter and go to seed prematurely.
