description for "Lettuce: Lactuca sativa 'Farmer's Market Blend'"

'Farmer's Market Blend' - a custom lettuce seed blend from Renee's Garden - combines tender, sweet and beautiful lettuces that draw raves at local farmers markets where baskets of the young leaves tempt the eye and appetite. 'Farmer's Market' blends the most delicious varieties for a balanced palette of colors, shapes and textures. Includes frilly, lime-green 'Tango,' upright green 'Little Gem,' crimson and green 'Cimarron' and burgundy 'Outredgeous.' Cut young leaves often for scrumptious salads that are pretty as a picture in the garden and at the table. 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
