If you’ve been wanting to learn how to harvest lettuce, this new video should help you out! Lettuce is one of my favourite things to grow in a container. Not only does it grow fast, it’s virtually fool-proof too! After learning the first year I tried to grow lettuce that it doesn’t like being in the hot sun for too long, I’ve been on a roll and have a couple containers every year.
Watch the video to see how I harvest spring mix lettuce leaves:
Lettuce also happens to be very easy to harvest. Here’s how to do it:
- The best time of day to harvest is in the morning, before the heat of the day wilts the leaves.
- Pinch the leaves off about an inch above the soil.
- Wash your leaves
- Enjoy a delicious salad!
By pinching off the leaves (instead of pulling the roots out of the soil) you’re allowing your lettuce to keep growing throughout the season.
