Growing Bibb Lettuce – Close to Harvest

(Last Updated On: June 8, 2011)

Lettuce is a crop that is easy to grow (as long as it is not too hot) and gives you a variety of options for harvest. Take the Bibb lettuce I am growing right now in a container. I could harvest at the point you see in the pictures. But I am going to wait for the leaves to mature further. We are growing this variety to have large lettuce leaves to use as a wrap or inside of a sandwich or burger.

In order to help keep the soil moist and any pesky weeds from sneaking in, I placed some wood chips around each plant.

Are you growing Bibb Lettuce this year? I would love to hear your experience. Leave a comment below.
