Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
This is the one with flavorful "butterhead type" heads of lettuce--the loosely held "head lettuce," actually somewhere between "head" and "leaf lettuce." It has a buttery flavored taste and broad green leaves. The best part is the center heart of folded leaves and their tender ribs.

When and Where to Plant: Lettuce is a cool-weather crop. Select a sunny location, cultivate and fertilize soil with vegetable food. Plant in early spring as soon as soil can be worked. Sow seed sparingly, firming soil over row. Repeat at 2 week intervals as long as weather is cool – spring and fall. For earliest crop start seeds indoors.
Care: Water lightly and regularly. Protect from pests.
Harvesting: Pull entire plant or cut off 1-2"/3-5 cm. above ground.
