Lettuce comes in many varieties; butterheads, leaf lettuces and crispheads. All have their own unique tastes and textures so experiment to find your favorites. Somewhat surprisingly, lettuce can add quick color and texture to containers and subsequently, is a great addition to container gardens. Although lettuce likes cooler weather, watering well and successive plantings will prolong your enjoyment of fresh spring and early summer salads. Finally, don’t forget to replant a fall crop!
