Time to plant lettuce!

September 3, 2010

lettuce

Well, now that September has arrived, I am going to plant some lettuce. It is so very easy to grow here and I had lettuce almost all winter here in Dixie.

Here is some advice I read about planting seeds:
Seeds should always be planted at a depth of 2X the size of the seed. If your seed is very tiny, just sprinkle a little soft dirt on top, if your seeds are bigger, push them into the ground about twice as deep as they are tall. Some seeds such as lettuces will not require any covering at all, just sprinkle them on top of your prepared soil and lightly water them in.
The Tasteful Garden Growing Tips This company is located in Alabama, so I trust what they say about growing vegetables in the South.

Now I must go and dig in the dirt. You should do the same, but remember to wear a hat and sunblock.

If you need to plan a garden, let me recommend the following company:
