Tip of the Month

Vegetable Gardening

Lettuce and other greens tend to grow particularly well in the cool weather of April and May. These crops are easy to grow -- and allow you to make your own salads from fresh, homegrown leaves!

If rabbits are a problem, try growing your lettuce in containers. Simply tuck lettuce seeds or seedlings into shallow pots; place pots in a location that receives up to a half-day sun. Plant lettuce at tighter-than-recommended spacing -- when seedlings start to crowd each other, thin them and eat the thinnings.

Go for the gourmet look and select a blend of lettuce types, including romaine, butterhead, and leaf. With leaf lettuces, plant a variety of hues to craft colorful salads.

Maximize harvests using the cut-and-come-again technique. Begin by picking outer leaves only from young plants. As plants mature, cut off every other plant just above soil, leaving a 1-inch stem stub. A small pair of scissors works well for this task.Fertilize lightly with liquid feed after harvest. The stubs will resprout.

Harvest remaining uncut plants when leaves are large enough, leaving a stem stub to resprout. You'll get several harvests using this technique.

Test Garden Tip: Lettuce and other greens love cool weather -- but crops like tomatoes and peppers don't. Wait to set heat-loving vegetables -- including eggplants, cucumbers, squash, pumpkins, or okra -- into the garden until all danger of frost has passed.
