This improved leaf lettuce is so good it's an All-America Selections award winner. Savor its tender, sweet and crinkly leaves in this summer's salads. Salad Bowl is easy to grow and slow to bolt (go to seed) even when the weather turns hot.
Plant seeds in early spring as soon as ground can be worked. (Note: Lettuce seeds won't sprout when soil is warmer than 75 degrees Fahrenheit.) Plant in enriched soil. Sow seeds sparingly, firm soil gently over the row and keep moist. Continue planting every 3 weeks.
Lettuce is a cool weather crop and must mature before hot weather arrives. Early spring and late summer plantings are the most productive. Begin thinning and eating when seedlings have 3 true leaves and continue until plants are at the recommended spacing. Keep well watered. To harvest full-size plants, snip off individual outer leaves or cut off the enire plant.
