    Cultural Information

    Lettuce (Latuca sativa) is cool season annual in the Compositae family, which includes endive, escarole, chicory, globe artichoke, sunflower, Jerusalem artichoke, salsify, and burdock.

    • Looseleaf- var.crispa.  First to maturity, these fast growing lettuces do not form a head.  Good for babyleaf culture.
    • Butterhead - also known as bib, or Boston, this type forms a loose head with slightly oily leaves. Beautiful, sweet and tender, but bruises and tears easily.
    • Romaine – var.longfolia.  Romaine forms a tall dense upright head with a tender heart. It tolerates warm temperatures and is less prone to bolting.
    • Iceberg – var. capitata.  The fussiest type to grow, iceberg will form a compact round head if given a long cool season. It bolts easily if stressed.

    Soil Nutrients and Requirements

    Choose cool, well drained, loose soil with pH 6.2-6.8. Lettuce is sensitive to low pH.  Use 50-75lbs Nitrogen/acre, ~150 Phosphorus and Potassium/acre. Sidedress with N 3-4 weeks after planting. With transplanting, use 2lbs/50 gallons starter fertilizer, 4-8oz per plant.

    Seeding Depth

    1/8”, seeds require minimum amount of light for germination.

    Plant Spacing

    Babyleaf – continuous band. Full size – 8-12”

    Row Spacing

    Babyleaf - ¾” between bands, 16 rows/36” bed. Full size - 12-18” or 3 rows/36” bed, 5’ centers.

    When to Sow

    Lettuce can be seeded in the spring as soon as the soil can be worked. Days to maturity are from direct seeding in spring conditions, subtract 10-14 days if transplanting, subtract 7-10 days if planting in summer conditions, add 20 days if planting late summer-fall In certain areas, lettuce can be grown throughout the summer by choosing varieties which are heat tolerant; however, many lettuce varieties have difficulty germinating in soils above 75°F.  Start transplants 3-4 weeks before setting out.  Sow seeds 4 per inch in flats or small-cell plug trays, barely covering with fine soil.  If sowing into flats, transplant 2 weeks later into plug trays, pots, or into another flat at 1-2” apart.

    Harvest

    Cut lettuce holds best when harvested in the morning and cooled rapidly.  For salad mix or baby leaf production, harvest individual leaves when they reach desired size, or cut evenly across the bed making sure to stay above the growing tip.  For a continuous harvest, sow lettuce every 3 weeks.

    Storage

    Store just above freezing temperatures with 98% humidity.

    People
    "All of us at High Mowing Organic Seeds are passionate about food and farming. Some of us run our own farms. Some of us have farmed in the past. Most of us grow some of our own food. We are a fun-loving group with diverse interests, brought together by our common love of growing, on whatever scale, appreciation for the importance of sustainable agriculture, and tolerance of a cold climate."

    Identity
    When the early European settlers came to New England, they brought with them their livestock-based agriculture. The practice of mowing hayfields and storing winter feed was well-established, and became even more important when they encountered the long winters in northern New England. But instead of calling such a field a "hayfield" like we do today, they called it a "mowing". These fields, or mowings, were usually further identified by a descriptor referring to location: the "back mowing" was behind the farm, the "low mowing" was in the valley, and the "high mowing" was up on the hilltop. In northern Vermont, where small rivers wind their way through mountainous and hilly terrain, nearly all mowings are "high mowings". A hundred years ago, farms on these hillsides had names like "High Mowing Farm" or "High Mowing Acres". When this seed company first started, they not only liked the sound of "high mowing", but it was an old, regionally specific, agricultural term that fit the kind of seed company they are: farm-based and rooted in a place.
