How do I plant the seeds?
This cool-weather crop is best planted in Spring or Fall. Most lettuce varieties grow best in temperatures ranging from 40-70F. Temperatures above 75F inhibit germination. Seeds can be started indoors or planted directly in the garden. Sow in full sun or partial shade. Lightly broadcast seeds over damp soil. Cover them with 1/8″-1/4″ soil. In 2-10 days, they will germinate. After they are a few inches tall, thin the seedlings to 10-12″ apart so they have room to grow. Harvest leaves individually or cut the entire head. Leaves will continue sprouting with regular harvesting. Lettuce is an excellent container plant. For a successive harvest, plant seeds every three weeks.
Spinach & Arugula
Plant these cold-hardy varieties in early spring as soon as the ground can be worked. Plant again in fall when the weather begins to cool. Many types are somewhat frost-resistant. Sow seeds in full or partial sun. Broadcast seeds over the ground, then cover them with 1/4″ soil. When they have reached 2-3″ tall, thin the seedlings, so they are 10-12″ apart. Do not neglect thinning or the plants won’t have enough space to grow. Harvest leaves when they are a minimum of 4-5″ tall. Harvest individual leaves, or cut back the entire plant. They will grow back. Leaves become bitter if allowed to grow too large. Plant new seeds every 2-3 weeks for a continuous harvest. Spinach and arugula grow well in containers.
Kale & Collards
Direct-seed outdoors as soon as the ground can be worked. Soil temperature should not exceed 70F. Plant in full sun. Broadcast seeds 1/4” deep in rows 1-2′ apart. When the seedlings reach 2-3” tall, thin them to 15-18” apart. Harvest when leaves reach 4-5”. Take individual leaves, starting from the outer sides or crop the entire head. They will grow back continuously with consistent harvesting. Large leaves turn bitter. Do another planting in late-summer for a fall and winter harvest. Plants are generally frost-hardy, and kale may last through winter.
