Cool days and chilly nights are just the kind of weather lettuce enjoys. Lettuce is a vegetable that is so easy to grow, and delicious, that any gardener should include it in their vegetable garden.

Lettuce is a cool season crop for us in Louisiana. Our planting season extends from September through March, with the harvest ending around May.

January is a great time to plant seeds directly into the garden or into pots.
