description for "Lettuce: Lactuca sativa 'Cut and Come Again'"

'Cut and Come Again,' a custom seed blend from Renee's Garden or baby lettuces, offers a simple way of experiencing the delicious diversity of lettuce colors, textures and flavors. The tender young leaves are ready to cut quickly and plants will regrow rapidly for a second and even third cutting from the same bed. These are the same gourmet varieties chefs use for signature salads in fine restaurants. Enjoy the pleasure and satisfaction of growing them in your own kitchen garden this season. Begin harvesting by the "cut and come again" method when plants are 4 or 5 inches tall. Cut as much lettuce as you need, using scissors to shear off a patch of leaves about 1 to 2 inches above the soil level. Water well and fertilize lightly, and plants will regrow for another cutting. Dress with a simple vinaigrette to enjoy the sweet flavor and juicy texture of these delicate young leaves at their best. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
